Wakodahatchee Wetlands Reserve, Del Ray Beach, Florida USA

----Under development----
The name of the wetlands I visited today, "Wakodahatchee," is derived from the Seminole Indian Language and translates as "created waters." The created waters at Wakodahatchee Wetlands are fifty acres of unused utilities land transformed into a wetlands ecosystem teeming with plants, birds, and other wildlife.

Plants today:
Arrowhead Sagittaria lancifolia
Sabel palmetto
Cabbage palm
Pickerel weed Pontedeur cordata (?)
Arrow arum
Fire flag
(I'll have to add more soon...I do not have time to add my list tonight.)


Birds
today:
Great blue Heron
Anhinga
Wood storks (7)




Other Animals today:
alligators (5 seen)
soft-shelled turtles (many)
red-eared turtle (many)

I think you can take Ryanair as a good case-in-point, whereby some people still want great customer service after paying peanuts. For people who are more realistic, it’s worth paying that little bit more for a better experience. After all, our time and how we feel, are the most important things for many people.
