Things you see in the Glades

We have been almost a week now here in the Glades..

When we arrived we realized we had a hitch hiker from North Fort Meyers.

I tried for a few days to catch it and lure it outside. It hung out in an air vent on the dash.

On the third day I was able to get it outside.

I hope its happy in this new environment.

Since we are fairly close we walk Anhinga trail most every day.

We see all the regulars hanging out together.

Ha! I skipped over the snail post to read this one Dawn! I would love to bird this place! I am glad you are having such a good time. Though you are getting a bit hot, i can tell you that it would be a bit cold for you to wear those sandals in New England! Miss you!
