Happy Thankful Thursday
This is my last post on our Florida trip in January 2019. We saw some new places and a few repeat places we enjoyed from previous trips. On this last full day after leaving Key Largo we drove to the Everglades National Park. Our visit happened during the government shutdown but this park was open partially. We visited the Flamingo area of the park, which is the most southernmost part of the Everglades National Park.
The Flamingo area of the Everglades offers boat rides and tours. I like the sky and reflections of the clouds.
A nearby Osprey nest.
A Brown Pelican sitting on the dock.
The White Ibis with a pretty blue sky.
A view of the Florida Bay and gulf coast.
We were happy to see a few Manatees around the boat docks.
This was a small baby manatee off to the side, he/she looked a little sick to me.
A sandbar out in the distance held lots of shorebirds, Osprey, Egrets and Herons.
A Little Blue Heron with a Great Egret. It is hard to tell where the water ends and the sky begins.
Below are a group of Snowy Egrets, a alligator that was making growling noises, Green Heron, Brown Pelican and another Osprey.
I am thankful for all things nature related.
I am thankful for clear and sunny days.
I am thankful for all your visits and comments.
