This Morning It Was Snakes

After breakfast a few of us went on a “snake safari”. Mike our guide loves snakes and went diving off into the bushes and poking through the grass looking for them. We, I should say Mike, found 5 different species (the garter snake I couldn’t photograph).

the last picture in this series is of an ornery fat cottonmouth that could kill you. I can’t say snakes are my favorite animal but it was an absolutely fascinating morning.

An Undisturbed Ten Thousand Acre Island

We already have seen birds by the hundreds, snakes, alligators, and eight banded armadillos, all that in only half a day. This place is amazing. Ten thousand acres of undisturbed wild habitat. We are living in a lodge surrounded by naturalists who make it their job to help us see and understand everything….more later

An Adventure On Little St. Simons Island

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Today it begins. We are about to board a little boat for a short ride offshore to a 10,oo acre island  where only 32  guests are allowed at any one time. It’s called Little St. Simons Island. We don’t know much about what to expect except that the place is kept as close to nature as possible. There will be birding walks, kayak rides and long hikes in the woods and along deserted beaches. 

For the next few posts I intend to give you a look at what we find and do. At this point I am not sure there is even adequate wifi on the island to send anything while we are out there but let’s hope.

Stay tuned!

The Creepy-Crawly Sanctuary

Here in Georgia the creepy-crawlies thrive. This lovely lad was lounging in a tree just outside our hotel door. I think he was hunting birds.

There’s One In Every State

No matter where you go in this wonderful country of ours there are out-of-the-way food joints that have a rabid following. In Charlotte North Carolina for instance there is Price’s Chicken Coop. Although the sign claims they also serve fish and shrimp don’t be fooled. To get anything but there fried chicken would be a culinary catastrophe.
