Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary


DSC_0117.jpg

Run by the Audobon Society, this slice of native Florida is located east of Naples, FL. A two-mile boardwalk provides an easy way to view this primordial swamp, which is habitat for a plethora of species of plants and animals. Some good gator pictures inside.

St. John's River


DSC_0047.jpg

What happens when I rent a boat at Hontoon Landing and cruise the St. Johns River in north central Florida? A lot of pictures of birds, reptiles, and the occasional cow! These photos were taken during two different such outings, one in March and the other in November.

Here and There Around Florida


Around Florida - 09.jpg

While Barb was in Florida, I took the opportunity to travel around the state and show her some of our "native" scenery, which to a British Columbian, is kind of exotic, sort of. Here are some photos from the east coast, the west coast, and the center of Florida, including Captiva Island and Anna Maria Island.
