Weekend in the swamp

Ms. Fatma and I went to Corkscrew Swamp Preserve in Naples this weekend. CSP is owned by National Audubon, is about 6,000 acres, with collection of pine and cypress hammocks. A 2-1/2 mile boardwalk wanders through part of it. Interesting place. It's a nesting area for the wood stork, which apparently is endangered. Lots of wild flowers--marsh mallows, arrowroot, pickerel weed, crinum lilies, water lilies, and lots more--were in bloom. Pond apples [Annona glabra] were in fruit. We saw three river otters--they jumped up on the boardwalk maybe 50 feet ahead of us [pictures didn't come out; too dark].
