After traversing five flights of stairs at the hospital carrying a travel bag and laptop I need to log a few miles myself. Elevators were being squirrelly so I "hiked".

Well it's a new year and that means spring cleaning. I tidied up the website a bit and I'm deciding what topics to focus on this year. Quickly coming up will be a trip back to manatee country followed by exploring new and exciting destinations. I'm open to ideas and suggestions, after all, it is an adventure. :-)

WOW! Just got back last weekend from my Western Caribbean cruise and I've got a lot of catching up to do! (that's where chronic adventuring will get ya!) Soon to appear on NWFLOA will be articles on Three River's State Park, Fanning State Park and Manatee State Park followed by a special feature on Roatan, Honduras, Belize, Costa Maya and Cozumel, Mexico. Hang on for the ride!

Here's an interesting perspective of the restoration in progress at Timber Lake. The before photo (2011) is on the left.

Yes, it used to be a man-made lake created by an earthen damn across the creek. They (Eglin AFB Natural Resources) have since removed the damn allowing the creek to flow freely and nature to reclaim the area. I suspect that it will benefit the Okaloosa Darter, a small endangered fish that is only found in six clear-water streams on the Eglin Reservation. This will allow their range to expand.

The next time I go back I'll try to take a picture from the same spot in pic #1. When I was there yesterday I couldn't remember if I had any old pics at all.

Let's help find who's doing this and put a stop to it. Please repost.
 
SEEKING INFORMATION regarding the injuries and deaths of pelicans in two areas of Florida. 

FLORIDA KEYS: In the past few weeks, pelicans with slit throat pouches have been turning up on Cudjoe Key and in areas from Sugarloaf Key to Big Pine Key. Brown pelicans are fish-eating birds that skim the water and collect fish in their large throat pouches. The throat injuries prevent them from swallowing and can ultimately lead to them dying of starvation.

JACKSONVILLE AREA: Eighteen injured pelicans have been found from Atlantic Beach down to St. Augustine. According to investigators, the birds have compound fractures on their wings and look as though they have been hit with something. The brown pelican is protected by the U.S. Migratory Bird Treaty Act and as a State Species of Special Concern by Florida’s Endangered and Threatened Species Rule.

The investigations are ongoing, but your assistance is needed! If you have information regarding these incidents, please call our Wildlife Alert hotline at 888-404-FWCC (3922) or text Tip@MyFWC.com. People with information may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.

For years I used to write and edit for several online magazines before I eventually decided to pay myself by creating my own website dedicated to outdoor adventure. I research and explore so that I can write and photograph the material necessary to create original articles. It's a passion. It doesn't pay enough to replace the day job, but the website pays for itself. I've investigated the idea of starting a local ecotour company, but it doesn't appear to be something that's going to happen anytime soon.
