I have been meditating a lot lately on the Word of God about enjoying life. My goal has always been to be able to plan to go places, look forward to going, and enjoy myself while I am there. Unless you have suffered under the weight of fear as I have, you would not understand how difficult that really is. God has given me a Scripture to stand on. The words of 1 Timothy 6:17 speak to my heart where it says God has given us "richly all things to enjoy."
Here are some of what we enjoyed yesterday. The video was taken on the marsh-side of the walk. The noise you hear are, for the most part, Black-bellied Whistling Ducks. There were hundreds of them flying back and forth. However, if you looked closely you would see an innumerable species of other water birds. We even saw a Roseate Spoonbill.
My husband actually took this photograph; this family of pigs was on his side of the car.

We probably saw all-together over 40 alligators of all sizes. We even saw two tiny babies, no more than one foot long. This one was perched on a log with several of his turtle friends.
I have many more photographs, including several landscapes of the Reserve. If you'd like to view the entire collection of photographs, you can do so here (pages 3-6).
