The joy of being with people who love nature
and enjoy life filled our hearts during the Labor
Day weekend swamp walks. This time of year the
swamp is lush, green and filled with water.
The environment is like walking back in time to
the beginning of earth. There is a peace that
fills my heart every time I enter the swamp.
I'm glad so many others have that joy too!
