A walk in the wetlands

It was the last day of spring break and we were up for something. The Easter break had had it’s usual fun. Family picnic—the pigs were a hit. Church. Family time. The weather was cool, but we decided to check out a new spot. Little did I know that our county owned a 30-acre wetland area complete with one mile of boardwalk to protect the delicate happenings there.

Perfect time to go. Tadpoles by the dozen.

Red-winged Blackbirds were calling everywhere. Even globs of salamander eggs. No one else was there. But raccoons had been the night before.

The perfect end to a great spring break.
