Nature Walks: Green Cay Revisited

Well, today I made one of my first nature walks for a very long time.  Autumn has finally arrived in SE Florida and so have cooler early morning temperatures.  And the beginning of the snowbird stampede as “Season” creeps closer; the official start is November 1st, only days away.

There were plenty of birds, no gators, a couple of turtles, and a lot of people.  I prefer the summer lack of population, but these past summer temperatures often ranging in the low 90’s were too much for me, plus the humidity.  Let us just say I did a lot of swimming rather than walking.

Let the birds do the talking now:

It was a lovely walk.  I’ll head out for more.

Enjoy your week!
