Journal Entry 04.28.2017 – Wakodahatchee & Green Cay Wetlands
The spring weather is warm and humid here. I get a little wacky in the heat, but still managed to get out, once again, and go bird-watching, etc. at these amazing wetlands. Saw an assortment of birds, one rabbit and five gators (two babies).
And now onto Green Cay… where I saw five gators today! And I HEARD an alligator. It was loud and startling, kind of a grunting roar.
Well-fed and taking a long nap in the sun…

This was an excellent outing. Mile for mile, these two wetlands provide photographers, tourists and the general public with a great taste of the wildlife that still thrives deep within the Everglades of South Florida. The wetlands are free to the public and provide an excellent learning experience with a dash of exercise thrown in.
Hope you’re enjoying the photo documentaries. Taking photos provides me with a creative outlet that I can share with others through this blog. Bringing a little Florida Natural to you. Enjoy your weekend.
