We love visiting Pelican Bay in Naples, Florida as the mangrove forests are simply teeming with wildlife. Long walks along the berm are sure to uncover a variety of surprises. On our most recent trip, we were delighted to find the resident owl!
This turtle looked like it might have been burying its eggs along the grass at the side of the berm.
A blue heron crossed our paths unexpectedly.
A fancy pigeon/rock dove appeared on the path before us.
While we tend to focus our travels on visiting cities, it's nice to escape to nature every once in a while.
