Nature Walks, December 28, 2017 – Green Cay
Christmas is behind us, New Year’s just ahead as the year begins its transition. You wouldn’t be able to tell it’s winter in Florida, however, as the 80 F degrees, days still continue, at least here in the SE Coast. There were some rain clouds looming to the south, but as the morning progressed, they dissipated. Consequently, I was able to join the snowbird crowds on a walk around the boardwalk, passing by clumps of families grouped here and there, as the distinctive “lilt” of a Jersey or New York accent would crash through the quiet.
There were no alligators to be seen today, but plenty of birds and some turtles. I’ll let them do the talking for me through photos. After all, a picture is worth a thousand words.
There were a great many more people than were present during the hot and humid months of the Florida summer. Still, the open-air views of the marsh and hammocks tend to lift my soul a bit even with the extra crowds.
Happy New Year to every one of my readers. Thanks for making this little blog a success.
