The St. Mary’s River, is part of the Okefenokee watershed. This river, which in dry times can be walked across, from Florida to Georgia (and back) by my home is also capable of floods spanning a mile or more in some areas, and 60 or more feet deep in the “walk to Georgia” spot. Water, and all of Nature must always be resepected. To my husband, especially, this place is Paradise.
Spring is early this year, even though we haven’t had the Febuary week or so of 17 F that we have every year, the huge Piliated Red Headed Woodpeckers are back. I heard, then saw the first one, of 2013, yesterday afternoon.——Granny
