Mom and Dad's Visit

Mom and Dad came down for a short visit last weekend. We had a good balance of relaxation and sight seeing. We took them up the Loxahatchee River to see Trapper Nelson's homestead:

On the left you will see a tree growing sideways; Alison gave us a painting of the Loxahatchee River that had a tree exactly like this!

Trapper Nelson's Sour Orange Tree, they weren't bad!

Mom and I went to the Logerhead Turtle Hospital; here is a turtle eating squid. He had his flipper removed to prevent the spreading of an infection.

We also went to an animal refurge center where we took a short walk and discovered this bird house taken over by bees!
