Wordful Wednesday is like Wordless Wednesday, only WITH words. It’s for those of us that can’t contain the chatter, but in a good way. More info. in my tabber box titled WW on the right. Thank you for playing along!
Visiting the Florida Everglades was a highlight. We went to the Everglades in Big Cypress National Park. That’s noteworthy because it means the Everglades where we visited are considered a Saw Grass Prairie/swamp…at least that’s what the tour guide told us. It was named for it’s cypress trees throughout the area.
Big Cypress National Preserve contains a mixture of tropical and temperate plant communities which is interesting because that means lots of wildlife including tons of birds like the anhinga and the great blue heron, and of course, alligators.
We got our fill of alligator sightings, and marveled at the amazing birds. We didn’t spy any snakes or the Florida panther, but we did get to see a super rare bird (see bottom right photo above) called the purple gallinule.
Despite the cold (the temperature dropped dramatically while we were there), we really, really enjoyed ourselves, and would have loved to bike through the preserve.
Next week I’m dying to show you Sanibel Island, our favorite place to visit in SW Florida!
