Crocodile population grows by one and I'm no snake charmer

Rousting reptiles begins with our neighbor Mike finding a baby Cayman in his house. He came over to release him and only set him down for a second..

Next comes a fearless snake that just wouldn't leave the bar. The standoff ended peacefully after throwing him over the fence.

Amazing Flood Part 2

The rain lasted another three days and without internet, dry clothes or passable roads the magic was wearing off. Only kayaks could reach the turtle camp volunteers and while Hannis worked hard digging ditches, water madness brought me to dancing. In to everyone's life a little rain must fall and after hearing other stories of destroyed houses and great loss, we felt fortunate indeed - just in time to enjoy the returning sunshine. A newer deeper and wider estuary brings back our long awaited neighbors the crocodiles. All is well again.
