Okefenokee, the "Land of the Trembling Earth"
|red shoulder hawks are common here|
|across a pond 11 young gators sunning|
|just down the road a bit, another 4 hatchlings hang out on a log....|
with mom close by in the brush
|part of the Chesser Island Homestead, this syrup shed is still used to demonstrate making cane syrup|
We took the Chesser Island Boardwalk.....
and came across a banded water snake trying to warm up! Right next to the board walk.
|from a lookout tower|
|we saw several downy woodpeckers|
these two guys were just coming back from spending the weekend in the swamp!
|don't know what kind of snake this is yet, also next to the trail!|
|getting ready to head out for our sunset "cruise"|
|small blue heron|
|last glimpse of the sun through the trees|
|see the young gator in the water off Mike's right elbow??|
|birds of all kinds flocked across the sky, it was noisy|
|this was the night of the super moon, we did not see much of it due to clouds|
the next day at a nearby beach
|BBQ at Southern Soul|
|super moon alright!|
