Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary

February 15, 2013 23:48 – 23:48

This morning, I began the day by taking a walk to the beach… about 7 miles. While at the beach, a wave washed a $20 bill right to my feet as high tide was coming in. So, I picked up that sorry piece of cash, and another way smacked into the sand right where the twenty had been. Another piece of luck was that as I was walking the public access boardwalk back to the streets, my left foot came down on a wet and very slippery leaf, and I almost fell. Almost. That’s the lucky part. I managed to grab the railing and not fall.

After I got home, I checked online for Mexican food recommendations, and came up with Taco Ardiente. It was okay, but not stellar. See my earlier review. After lunch, I sat in the car for a few minutes with the tourbook for south Florida. It was raining, but I didn’t really feel like going to the art museum. Radar showed that the rain was local and not so much up north. So, I decided to head to Corkscrew Swamp Sanctuary.

Corkscrew was named that because of the way water swirls somewhere in the park. I didn’t the namesake. While there, I joined the National Audubon Society, then walked the boardwalk. Note to self: boardwalks are very slippery when wet. I put a bunch of pictures up on Facebook. One of my favorites was a red-shouldered hawk.

After I got home and was unloading the car, I glanced up in the sky just in time to see this:

For dinner, I elected delivery pizza from Truly Organic Pizza… which was barely okay. They don’t go onto my “must go back there” list.
