With Mrs. FC and Emma cruising to Mexico, and Jr. down in Palm Beach for a Student Government convention, I took my first baby out for a cruise through the 53,000 acre Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.
It was a spectacular spring day outside. She had been sitting inside working on some college stuff and chain watching the new Animal Planet series.
I told her I knew where there was one, ... would she like to go see it?
A short while later we were cruising, windows down, Bama Breeze blasting, down the two lane country road that leads to the refuge.
We walked the .4 mile river trail down to the ... um ... river. The trail snakes through a drought dry cypress and gum swamp to the banks of the Suwannee. With no rain there's no mosquitoes, so a trail that would normally require running the mosquito gauntlet turned out to be very pleasant.
