Viera Wetlands Drive Through
As soon as we passed Jacksonville, Florida (see yesterday's post), the rain began.
We debated whether we would stop at Viera Wetlands to see if we could get a few pictures.
When we got there, there was a steady drizzle of rain and we found that all but one of the sections (ponds) were very low on water.
Many of the birds didn't mind at all since the lower water allowed them to find goodies to eat on the bottom more easily.
Can you see that little critter out there?
Yes, that's a little alligator in the middle of many raindrops. I rather like these shots.
We were glad the gate was open so we could drive through the wetlands this time. The rain would not have been good for our cameras.
Yum! So many bottom goodies!
We got back on the highway just before more rain started. Look carefully up ahead to see a wall of rain waiting for us.
Soon we arrived in Vero Beach, our stop for the night, checked into our hotel, then went over to the mall for a little shopping. Although the sky was overcast, we were very fortunate that the rain had stopped long enough for us to get in and out of the stores without being soaked.
More of our journey tomorrow. I hope you're enjoying our trip with us....
