Happy Saturday Gals!
Hope your day has been wonderful!
I got some garage saling in and did some yard work
out front, so mine has been GOOD!
Thank you SO much for all of your prayers, love and support
with my brain MRI and stuff!! It went VERY well!
If you ever have to have an MRI, let me say sitting and
watching TV is the way to do it!
I should get my results on Tuesday! I'll let you know...
I think they did at least find that I HAVE a brain!!
NOW on to some fun with BLOGGY friends!!!
Remember my trip to north Florida to meet up with some
wonderful bloggy friends?
fun!! I told them that I had an "adopted son" who is a
Captain that operates an airboat, and they couldn't resist
stopping in down here for a ride!!
They have all kinds of similar wildlife in Canada...
but NO gators!! And Capt. Josh is not only a guide, but an avid
gator hunter! So the hunt was on!
Shelley, a sweet bloggy friend...who is SO much fun
came along and we had a great time!!
He took us first up to Deleon Springs so we could see some manatees.
This is a little boat house we saw as we rounded the curve to the springs.
A very large manatee coming up for air
There were all types of wildlife. Tons of these waterfowl...just don't
know what they are!
Capt. Josh pointed out these tree roots...let's go look over there
It was the home of a nest of baby gators. Here is one of the larger ones.
It's about 3 feet long
If you look closely you can see the smaller ones.
They were only about 1 1/2 ' long. They are too cute!
This is an Osprey...often mistaken for a bald eagle.
So beautiful! As you can see the weather was divine!
Capt. Josh had to take a little break for a minute...if you know what
I mean, and Claudie decided she would jump out and make sure that the
boat didn't drift away!
Now on to the big ol' boys!! We saw a couple of gators that were
well over 10 feet long! He had his eyes on us for sure!
Julie is a photographer and was leaning down and forward to
get a good picture of a gator that was only about 5-6 feet away.
I don't know if this was the one...but he was at least this big!
(we're talking 11-12 feet long my friends)
He raised up and lunged forward to go into the water,
and gave Julie and Claudie quite a fright!!
The St John's river is so beautiful and serene.
This is another little boat house that just captures the whole
feel of life on the river.
A picture of my fellow adventurers!
Left to right: Julie, Claudie and Shelley!
A day we will always remember!
If you ever have the opportunity to meet up with some bloggy buddies
I encourage you to go for it! We had a great time!
Have a praise-filled Sunday, my friends!
Love ya bunches!
