Checking in!

Well, dear friends, we are back safe and sound from our adventures in the Okefenokee Swamp, our friends have left for their home in New Mexico, and our minds are still spinning with all that we've seen and done in these few short days.
I will have amazing photos to share with you, as we saw more alligators on this trip than we've ever seen before and the weather was simply amazing! Truly an incredible adventure!!

However... I picked up a little bug along the way (better than picking up a gator, right?) that had me out of commission for a whole day and then some.
If you click on the photo, you can see an alligator in the picture.
So I'm going to take a few days to fully recuperate and get my old energy back. And when I do, I have much to share with you!

I hope you are all doing well!! I've sure missed connecting with you all...


  1. Silke,

    Sorry to hear that you're feeling a bit under the weather! I look forward to catching up with you & hearing lots more about your visitors & your trip once you are back in the swing of things again. Take care! hugs, Beth

  2. Oooooohhh! Lovely place but very humid. I have gone fishing at Lake Okefenokee with The Viking but I don't think I caught anything! I remember my sunglasses broke and my eyes hurt from all that sun! That's a beautiful image you have up there!

  3. How fun! I've never been there, but that's on my to-do list...I know that it's an amazing place.

    Hope you'll be feeling better soon, Silke!

  4. Wow, Silke! Amazing photos. That place looks peaceful and yet a little scary. You were definitely close to the alligators. Looking forward to more photos when you are feeling better.
    Get well soon!
