Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive

After a busy week getting things started at the new house we took a drive back out to Lake Apopka Wildlife Drive to get our nature fix. I got some really nice photos of a red-winged blackbird... 

And osprey hunting and feeding...

So looking forward to a week in nature in Canada soon...:)

Happy Easter!

Everyone was in the Easter spirit this year! The girls looked as beautiful as ever for the big day...

Rich was so excited at how much he looked like his egg, his hair literally stood up on end. An Easter miracle!

Even Juneau had a little lamb...

Nana put on a family feast!

It was great to see my bunny:)

There were so many Earlys in one place - it was like a family reunion!


Happy Easter (and Happy Birthday Week Stephanie and Rowan too:))

It's Nesting Season again at Gatorland!

There have been record numbers of photographers at Gatorland the past couple of weeks to see all of the wading bird hatchlings on their amazing breeding marsh. It's truly an incredible sight - these birds are able to nest at eye height since the gators keep their typical predators at bay. You can see up close how they look after their precious eggs and chicks. I've been banging on about how much I love this time of the year so Alex came over to see the bird nesting action too which was a double treat:)

The gators are so well fed that the birds don't have to worry about them at all:)

We even saw a male emu turning his eggs!

I love feeding the goats in return for selfies...

Those chicks are so cute!

And we saw the deer being fed too...

It wasn't too hot and we had a perfect day - thanks for coming Alex!

Happy St Patrick’s Day!

We ended Maddy's Spring Break visit with a drive on Lake Apopka Nature Drive where we got to see Florida wildlife at it's finest. We will definitely do this one again:)

And her last weekend was St Patrick's Day so we went to Hollywood Studios to celebrate while the corned beef and cabbage was in the crockpot...

Happy St Patrick's Day!
