Best nature park in Florida - the Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach, Florida

Thanks to our siblings who recently moved to South Florida, we've had the opportunity to visit and discover new places of interests. One favorite is the Wakodahatchee Wetlands in Delray Beach. With over 178 different species of birds, the wildlife refuge is a photographer's paradise. It is also a wonderful place to enjoy a leisurely walk. There is a three-quarter mile long boardwalk with gazebos and benches along the way so you can stop and observe the birds in their natural habitats. The park is so popular Money Magazine named Wakodahatchee Wetlands the best park in Florida last year.

  2. Great picture of an alligator. Thanks for letting know about these hidden gems. Snowy egret and great egret both look the same.

  3. You asked if we were splitting our time between RVing and cruising in our boat. We are (under normal situations) but also spend lots of time at our float cabin up the lake. We can't go home right new because of quarantine restriction in British Columbia. Spending 14 days inside a two bedroom condo without any possibility of getting outdoors seems too difficult. We will say down in Washington State where we can at least go out to get groceries and walk in the neighbourhood. - Margy

    1. The quarantine is not affecting us as much. But a tornado roared through nearby Chattanooga on Sunday nite, destroying many homes on its path. Fortunately we are safe on the river. We have floating docks, so no flooding from the heavy rain we got.

      Hope things get better soon. Take care!
