Ten nature loving ladies took a walk in the Lower Suwannee NWR on Thursday, December 03, 2015. Sally Beveridge, Vicki Crumpley, Cindy Leiner, Joyce DeHaan, Kit Lane, Patti Jett, Debi Dorn, Katherine Dunlop, Wynne Simpson joined me, Donna Thalacker, for a 3 mile walk behind the gates at the end of Cabin Road.
As far as I am concerned, it was a perfect day for a walk through the woods, with cooler temperatures and zero bugs.
We started out by startling a flock of Wood Storks, and along the way managed to see a few other birds and a number of flowers still in bloom. Our walk took us over swamp, across hardwood hammocks, and out to the salt marsh, where we saw some evidence of sea level rise out over the marsh. It was a fun walk and a great chance to visit, which could be related to the fact that the only birds we saw were birds we startled!
Thanks to Vicki Crumpley for her photographs!
Our next nature walk will be December 17. If you are around and would like to join me, meet at the Cedar Key Town Park parking lot at 9am. Or give me a call at 543-6738 for directions to the start point. I hope to see you then!
