Viera Wetlands Nature Preserve - Viera, Florida - Part II

Good morning,

Today I have a few more images of the more than 100 that I took at the Viera Wetlands Nature Preserve near Melbourne, Florida.
We had no idea we would stumble across this great place and were in awe of what we found here.
We couldn't take pictures fast enough with all of the wonderful wildlife here.
There is an unpaved road through the preserve that we only had time to travel once.  We stopped several times, walked, and took pictures, but will definitely be back with a whole more time allocated.
 What a beautiful place.  I hope you've enjoyed these few images. 
 We will return!

Very best,
Lois

Hi Lois, what a wonderful side trip with lots of photo ops. Glad you and Kjell were able to wander through and share with everyone. Hope you made the rest of the journey safely and look forward to more shipboard blogging. Happy Mother's Day wherever you are spending the day!

Just have a couple of minutes to say I love these recent photos from the wetlands. Hopefully you will be able to get back there again and show us more
Also I'm amazed at how you manage to find different things to post about the road journey to the port that you take on a regular basis
Take care
Cathy

Hi Everyone,

We absolutely LOVED this place! I am sure we will schedule it for a longer time period the next time we are coming South. It was truly a photo wonderland.

Thanks so much, everyone, for stopping by and for your very kind comments.

Very best,
Lois
