The Wildlife

My favourite spot :D The Lighthouse at Bill Baggs Park








The cool thing about being a marine biologist is you can actually tell your kids what the creatures you find are...

Goose Barnacle...ugly buggers










Hermit crab--waving











Portugese Man O War










Bird (snigger)










And this is a view south-west off the Florida Keys...












And this was the best shot I got of a pair of gators...



And this guy lived on our balcony :D












Tomorrow Disney World :D

  1. Nice pictures. Were those critters just there or did you have to go looking for them? Very cool (from a girl who's wildlife sightings are those of deer and squirrel).

  6. Hey--I know most Americans are good people, these people were all just weird with their noses stuck up in the air! Maybe they could smell poverty on us???

  9. Meretta--yes, we did. At the library (next door to the condos), which had a pond and waterfall and a zillion iguanas and a bunch of turtles!!

    Eve--Texas sounds like a great place to visit!
