Dear Friend in Peace,
Ernie and I spent the past week savoring the blessings and joys of one of our favorite places: Fakahatchee Strand Preserve State Park. We were blessed to be expertly guided through a swamp there by our kind friends Eric, Rita, and Karen. The photos at the bottom of this page highlight some of the joys of our trip to this serene setting.
This poem sums up my experience of the swamp.
