Day 162-165/365

Did some visiting family at the swamp house this weekend!! Great fun! Now we're back and getting back to the regular schedule again. I TRIED to pick one picture per day to post now that I'm catching up, BUT most days I could only narrow it down to my two favorite! So... here you are...
Day 162- Holiday Lounging
The Girl and one of her favorite dog buddies enjoying the lounge chairs.
Day 163- Bird & Crab Watching
Just love how many birds we can see at the swamp!! =) Saw LOTS of egrets, a few million seagulls, and many more!
I could watch these guys for hours... one of my favorite sites from our swamp visits!
Day 164- Driving and Baby Watching
At one of the sites we visited The Kids played with these boat wheels... for a LONG time!! They had a blast... despite the fact that the boats are no longer there!! =P
Sat down on a bench to take a quick breather and caught site of these cuties. They're getting tucked in for a nap I think. Can you see the lil' feet sticking out from under the wing?!
Day 165- Morning Surprise
AND then this morning... I was greeted by this site! A mama turtle in the process of laying her eggs. It must've been turtle day, 'cause I think we saw about a dozen turtles by the time we left the swamp. After mama turtle left, I checked the area where she left her eggs. I found it, but she hid it pretty well. Hoping those lil' babies make it safe into the world! =)
AND... I love all the old wood docks at the swamp. I had to share at least one capture of them!! =)

Overall a great visit! We are now all tuckered out and needing a vacation from our long weekend getaway. Isn't that how it always goes?! Hope you all had a wonderful and safe 4th too!! =D

Wow, Gretchen!!! You got some beautiful captures from your trip! My top faves are the turtle, the chicks, and the dof from the boat wheel shot (LOVE that one!).
