It was a perfect Florida winter day for a walk in the Refuge. Though it started off cool enough for light jackets, before the walk was over, most of us were wearing the jackets tied around our waists. Bill Peterson, Maggie Funchion, Sally Beveridge, Kit Lane, Jane Reineke , Susan Davis-Hyllested and myself, Donna Thalacker, met at the beginning to Cabin Road and walked the road for a couple of hours. We heard and saw plenty of birds, but it was too cold for alligators and we did not see any otters. So, Jane entertained us by doing a balancing act on a log in the water! Fortunately, she didn’t get wet and thanked her yoga practice for such good balance!
