"That's the island greeting that we send to you...

...from the land where palm trees sway." Mele Kalikimaka by Bing Crosby.

More pictures from our trip! This was at the Homosassa Springs Wildlife Preserve that Grandpa took us to see.

Lovely boat ride in...the water was so still!

A precious baby 'possum!

Ryan petting a less-precious tiny gator.

Not a friendly creature.

Dozing black bear and friend. 

Pelican island.

"say what?!"

"Steve" the squirrel who followed Ryan around all day.

Bald eagle and backdrop. :) 
Grumpy owl.

Precious sleepy little fox.

Can you spot the critter on this side of the water?


Gators - yikes!

Resident hippo, Lucifer (or "Lu" for short)

Lu was a movie star before he came to Florida to retire. 
Lu did pose for the camera nicely.
Snack break.
Strike a pose! 
Baby alligators - notice the turtle and frog in the background (for scale)

Fishes from the underwater observation platform...

Fishes from above...

Manatees! ("Barbara?!")

Pretty boatride out!
