Event Update: SOS Walk #2

We did our second official SOS walk this morning. There were a few setbacks. First, none of us realized that there are at least 3 parking lots for the North Sebastian Conservation Area. Second, there are no maps at the park, the trails are poorly marked, and none of us had been there before. Third, it was hotter than hades. We realized at about the 1.5 mile mark that this would still be an SOS walk, but instead of Six on Sunday, it would stand for SWEAT on Sunday! So, we kind of wandered aimlessly for 3 miles, but it was all good, had a great time, got cool pictures, and got to see some things this week! So, if you didn't GOYB this weekend, here's what you missed:

 This is a female scrub lizard. With the really spiny back she kind of looks ancient.
 This is a Tar Flower
 This is a boy scrub lizard. Notice the brighter colors on the tummy.
 Another shot of the boy scrub lizard. I love the bright blue under the chin, just makes me want to go kootchi-kootchi-koo!
 This is a Marsh Pink.
This is so cool. We came across this indian midden. Here is the divine Miss Heather showing how the shells were used.
 The cool thing about this conservation area is the critters. It's amazing how good at camoflage they are. Here is an oak toad. They were all over, but hard to see.
This is HFC David beside a palm tree that had a pine tree growing out of it.
 This is a Day Flower. I like the way it looks like it has a little spider in the middle.
 This is a yellow bellied slider with an attitude.
 HFC David with a gopher tortoise
 Heather with the same gopher tortoise
David took this shot of the board walk. It was a georgeous day!
Heather and yours truly.

It was a great day out there. Make sure you remember to GOYB and join us in our future adventures. Remember, you might see life on TV, but won't actually live life on your couch!
