We rode the school bus together. I haven't been on a school bus since 1989. It was quite the experience watching boys put safety pins through the top layer of skin on their hands, and girls giggle and bop each other on the heads.
The counselors divided us into groups, then we got to be scientists and study the hardwood hammock, the lake, and the sand hill.
We found a spider inside a flower.
A snake skin! It was about 8 feet long. I didn't take a picture of it, but we were supposed to look for scat, and we found it :) Ours had a dung beetle making nice little poop balls to feed its babies.
Here is Ashley's scientist-group, excited to explore the flora and fauna around them.
They all went on a hay ride, but Ashley said the driver wasn't very good. She kept going off the road...
We checked out the museum of dead-and-stuffed animals. They had samples of a lot of the animal life you can find around the camp. Ashley said she saw vultures, alligators, fish, bats, deer, owls, and a cougar (go cougars!).
Ashley said her favorite part of the day was the hike. My favorite part was holding her hand the whole time, since she'll be too grown up to hold it in a year or two :)
