The joy of being with people who love nature and enjoy life filled our hearts during the Labor Day weekend swamp walks. This time of year the swamp is lush, green and filled with water. The environment is like walking back in time to the beginning of earth. There is a peace that fills my heart every time I enter the swamp. I’m glad so many others have that joy too!

Thanks to you all for coming to the Muck-About! If you discovered that Florida has a hidden beauty that few people know about, share the discovery with others. Let them understand that our state is a special place and needs to be protected.
