After coffee and breakfast we headed out to explore the boardwalk along the Peace River. Really, it’s through the river’s flood plain with a few lookouts over the river.
Water moves so slowly that you aren’t able to hear the current.
The boardwalk is covered by treetops, vines and moss. It was really fun to look at the different types of plants growing wild. Notably were the giant cypress trunks and roots. The forest floor was a thick and dark mud.
During the walk Ella informed us her fur is growing long. Upon further investigation we discovered that she was talking about her arm hair.
We had nice views from our picnic spot and kept an eye out on the gators swimming around.
With our bellies full we headed back to my Garndprents for a dip in the pool and some golf carting around their neighborhood and golf course. Kayleigh and Ella love to watch all the birds and spy on sleeping gators.
Tomorrow we are starting our day at The Circle B Bar Reserve. On past excursions we have seen armadillos, eagles, and of course some big gators!
