Trail through the Mangroves

Spending time in Nature is exhilarating, especially when you can share your adventures. One such Trek delivered a lasting memory and can still hear his voice through high winds.

“Honey how did you find this place?”   

Memories from my youth or maybe it was the strange exhilaration, undefinable as the turbulent wind on my cheeks,  the feeling ignited me. Earlobes numb, tip of my nose rosy and now heat escaped from my chest as laughter. Twigs were snapping and it wasn’t from my body! Yup, one had to humble themselves to enter into the joy of it all.                          The path was getting brighter and now one could see as well as hear the surf.

Grabbed my phone and filmed

At first there appeared to be no visitors, sat down and in flew some Willet’s, Sandpiper’s, Brown Pelican’s, itty bitty crabs and a lone Osprey. They have amazing eyesight and eye contact was profound Each creature appears to have intelligence and their very own personality Osprey definitely was checking us out and came in close, wish I had my 400 with me, missed the full wing span, however captured that gleam in his eye! and the sun contrasts of a brown pelicans pouch! Didn’t know Brown Pelicans were on Florida’s endangered species list. A magical day indeed and the best part?  Sharing all with hubby! “Sit down before fact as a little child, be prepared to give up every preconceived notion, follow humbly wherever and to whatever abysses nature leads, or you shall learn nothing. I have only begun to learn content and peace of mind since I have resolved at all risks to do this.” ― Thomas Henry Huxley, Life and Letters of Thomas Henry Huxley – Volume 1

    Hilarious shot with Bill!!!  LOL    I felt in tune with the ‘walk’ could almost hear the waves.  For me this was the best ever.  Simple; but Oh so revealing.
