Walked through the Okefenokee Swamp.
Then took a boat ride through the Swamp.
And, this is what we saw:
Every 20 years or so the swamp has a drought and dries up allowing lightning to start a fire that will burn through the swamp. The last such fire was in 2011:
Evidently this is needed to rebuild the swamp as these tree seeds need the fire heat to germinate.
Lots of lily pads, not one frog on them. However, they were flowering today.
We did see a frog as we walked through the swamp.
Also went to Chesser Island, which is a home of a swamp family. The dossier was also a swamp person, but since the Swamp is now a National Wildlife Refuge, all the Swamp people have been booted out.
We had our own wildlife at the campsite as there were free roaming guinea birds.
