Wetlands Hike

Here's another chapter of Adventures with Apollo. I went on a hike with Mommy and Daddy and Tootsie. We decided to check out this new wetlands trail that contains 2 miles of boardwalk through the wetlands. It was way cool.

Here's a picture of me posing on the boardwalk.

Here's a picture of me and Daddy posing at one of the lookout platforms.

Here's a picture of one of the deeper parts of the wetlands. Don't worry, they actually had rails through this part.

Here's me posing at one of the other lookout platforms.

And here's me and Tootsie strolling down the boardwalk.

Mommy also shot some video of me at the Blue Heron lookout platform. As you can see, I wasn't too interested. I wanted to keep walking.

Sadly enough we didn't get a picture of Mommy falling into the swampy wetlands, getting covered with mud, and then getting bit by a snake. Unfortunately she was the one taking the pictures, therefore holding the camera, which luckily was able to be salvaged. My Mommy sure is a trooper though. Despite that little disaster, she said she still had fun and can't wait to go back.



    (Mom is squirming and flipping out now...she's deathly afraid of ANY snakes!)

    Great pics, but we hope that mom is ok!!!!

    Have a good weekend and BE CAREFUL for crap's sake!!!!!


  2. Dang, Apollo, buddy!!! Is yer mom okay??? Did ya have to suck the snake venom outta her??

  3. Don't worry, my Mommy's okay. The snake was little (foot long). It was just a harmless water snake. Even though she has two puncture wounds (1/4 inch apart), they only bled a little. She said it was nothing...only stung for a second.

  4. Apollo - Did you push your mom into the water? That's not very nice of you :)

    You get to do so many cool things! I love to look for Great Blue Herons - we have them right across the street from our house. Mom loves them and tells me not to get too close because I will scare them. No one is afraid of little ole me.

    I can't believe your mom was bit by a snake. My mom loves snakes and is constantly looking for them when we are out walking. I stay very far away from them because I don't want anything taking a bite out of me.
