Well the weather turned real nice and I just could not sit inside any longer. Bo and I needed some fresh air and we headed out to the Upper Tampa Bay Park to check a few of the trails out.
I knew it would be rough seeing anything at mid day but thought to give it a try and check out the trails. With all the rain they were pretty wet still and the fiddler crabs were everywhere. Bo tried to catch a couple of them, it was funny watching him check out this new weird bug looking critter that snapped back at him when he tried to bite it!
As far as wildlife that was all to be seen besides a stork that flew over too high to photograph. There was snake track along the trail so I knew the rattlesnakes and cottonmouths were stirred up from all the wet weather.
We did walk the Bobcat Trail and just the beginning of the Otter Trail – no need to stir up snakes back there! I will go back when it dries up some and finish taking photos of that trail.
For it being a holiday weekend the park only had a few persons there. I saw a couple people fishing and a few picnicking and at the playground. I was surprised as it is a beautiful location. The salt marsh views are very nice right now. Dragonflies seem to be darting about everywhere – none wanted their photo taken today though.
I will post what photos I did get so you can have a nice view of what is available out there. It is a beautiful place to visit, go check it out sometime!
