GRATEFUL FOR A NATURE LOVING SPOUSE
If you have visited my blog Coffee With Hallelujah before, you know that I am married to a well-rounded, fun-loving, articulate scientist, Tony Martin, whose academic and personal interests take us both to the Georgia coast to explore the tracks, trails, feces, and burrows of its abundant wildlife (visit the blog he writes about the Georgia coast). Tony becomes exuberant when he is following tracks of shore birds along the ocean front or those of an alligator in the maritime forest. I do too!
I am immensely grateful for Tony's sense of adventure as well as his education and intuition that engages us in looking for alligators and understanding their behaviors!
LOOKING FOR ALLIGATORS. While we were at this fresh water pond on St. Catherine's, we did not see one alligator, only "sign" or evidence of them, such as pathways through grass and entry ways into the water. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
So why am I grateful for these alligator encounters along the coast of Georgia with my husband Tony? I'm smiling as I write this blog entry and insert these photos! What good fun I am having in the prime of my life, this transition of summer to fall! Love restores me, and NATURE heals me! Adventures wake me up and make me strong! Hallelujah!
That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me and tell me what you are grateful for and what is making you smile!
So much beauty here! Although I would have been terrified of the alligator. ;)ReplyDelete
Kat! You are one of my blogging heroes! Thank you for taking the time to visit and read my blog! American alligators should be treated with caution as they are not to be approached. However,if humans keep a respectable distance, there should be no problem.Delete

What adventures you have! I would also be very wary of alligators, but definitely fascinated.ReplyDelete
Dear Planet Treasures, you are correct! Being wary of alligators is important. At the same time, I love being close enough to see them in their natural environment in the maritime forest, around the fresh water ponds, and along the coast line.Delete
WoW!! What an amazing couple living a fabulous life. The closest I've come to my ideal was working on a reserve in South Africa. It was pure heaven and I loved every second of it. Enjoy your dream lovely one and thanks for popping over to see me xxxReplyDelete
