Loggerhead Turtle Tour

The Hawksbill

Dman and Ducky

Loggerhead Turtle




My wife told me to write about this tour but since I didn't go on this tour I will have to make something up.  So here it goes.  It was a bright shiney day and very temperate.  We had just come from the opera and had great expectations for our journey through Loggerhead Park.  As you can see by these pictures we had a magnificant time and look forward to returning soon.

Nature Study-2/1/11

Nature Study at the Preserve.

Our Fire!!

D Man taking my picture with the binoculars.

Observing God's creation!!

Jesus is the Reason for all Seasons.

We came home from the Preserve and went to see if we had tadpoles in our lake, we didn't but we saw somethings around our neighborhood.

Ducky found a plant, she pulled it out root and all.

D Man searching for Minos.

We found a calm shell.

These are old apple snail shells, D Man said that The Lipkin was there and had a feast.

A turtle, I think he liked people because he didn't flee.

We spoke about why the water had all that green stuff.

We collected apple snail shells along our way.

Yes, we have Alligators in our Lake but they won't bother you if you don't bother them.

We had a wonderful time in God's Creation, Thank you Lord for your Creation:)
