Heading back north

We are heading north slowly. We hate to leave the swamps and the beauty but have responsibilities at home. We are going slowly but moving that way but have a few stops to make along the way.  

It's a beautiful day here in the sunny south.

Our new campsite

We are in a quant little camp that so happens to be behind the Skunk Ape Research Center I am happy but Robin wasn't to sure about it when I told him about it. He made the reservations and found the place. I had nothing to do with it. 

We are on the outside of the Everglades National Park. Our door is 5 feet from the swamp. Awesome but we are being extra careful with the dogs. Gator and snake bate is no joke here. 

Out of our door 5 feet away
To the othe road side of our site

Great blue Heron and snake

We missed a perfect Kodac moment today a blue heron standing  beside the road with a snake in its mouth. Of course no camera anywhere in sight. The drains and cannels are running deep due to all the heavy rains. It makes it nice for the birds because then the fish come through the side ditches making it easier for them to catch.
We saw a sea turtle that washed ashore unfortuntly he was dead very sad. Later we saw a turtle he was larger and diffently alive and moving quite fast for a turtle.
