MONDAY – Labor Day Weekend Muck-About (Swamp Walk)

Monday was another beautiful day…

He had a ball running everyone
around the property in our new
electric cart. Here he is taking
Clyde up to the gallery.

So long to another great summer
swamp walk. It was wonderful spending
time with all of you out in the swamp
and talking with you in the gallery.
Share your experience with others to let
them know our environment in Florida
is something very special. THANKS!
We give a great big
to all of our swamp guides.
Their enthusiasm for the environment
and positive outlook on life makes
our time spent together one of joy
and satisfaction. We appreciate you!
