Found a bit of cuteness on my camping trip at St. Andrews State Park this weekend.

Me  in front of one of the few channel markers. This marker designates where the West Arm enters the main body of the Dead Lakes. At 6700 acres, I can imagine it doesn't take much to become lost.

Prior to yesterday's news (see +Beverly Hill post about honorary team member, Dakota), I took a trip over to the Dead Lakes in Wewahitchka to do some exploring and fishing. Although I managed to bring home a mess of crappie and shellcracker, I also was able to learn what makes the Dead Lakes so darn hard to navigate. Below is a picture of just one of the very hard to spot markers that let boaters/paddlers know that they're on the right track. I didn't spot this one until on the return trip, which luckily I handled with the assistance of a handheld gps. I plan to return, but I think it's going to be a few more trips before I can confidently navigate my way around the area.

What I wouldn't give to be able to fish in Bass Pro's fish tank...

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. :-)

And this is the tunnel that the previous marker belongs to. If you're not looking in the right direction you'll miss it completely.

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.
