    Thanks JoAnn for leading a very informative walk in this beautiful preserve. I also enjoyed meeting everyone!

    Won't believe what I found wandering across 41 just North of Coconut after I left the park this morning. A gopher turtle wandering onto the highway. Of course I stopped traffic and got out to move him safely to the field 20 yards from the edge of the road. Hopefully he didn't turn around and head back out there again!

    Likewise, I'm afraid. Sorry I shan't be able to make it - I was looking forward to it, but, like Rodger, something has turned up that needs my immediate attention.

    Joann, I'm sorry to say I have to cancel attending the Estro Bay Preserve walk tomorrow. I was looking forward to the walk and meeting like minded people but unfortunately something has come up. Have a great time tomorrow.

    I wanted to join you on this hike but.... I went to VA to hike a section of the AT. I slipped and fell and broke my right ankle and right wrist. I will be wheel chair bound for 6 weeks. Have a great hike. Janet

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
