First of Fifty-five Adventures

This morning, husband and I went on a hike to the Teddy Roosevelt Area of Timucuan National Preserve in north of Jacksonville.

This was day one of my fifty-five adventures: my birthday began with a bang.

IMG_2478.JPG Timucuan was named for the Native American tribes who once roamed this part of Florida. The hammock and its trails are filled with live oaks, cedar, pine and saw palmettos.

The trail takes you around through the woods and along the salt marsh. We saw pileated wood peckers, snowy egrets, and other shore birds.IMG_2466.JPG

The first of many  adventures!
