This is the second part of our March Ghost River trip. In the first part we fight upstream rapids to make it to the wide open swamp in this video where we can relax and enjoy the peacefulness. We saw 3 turtles, who would not cooperate with being photographed, and one very cooperative beaver who posed nicely while we circled all the way around him and his lodge! Overall a great trip!

Subscribe to see part 3 where we continue upstream as the swam narrows again and then return downstream back to our car.

Thanks for watching!!!

In March 2018, Dave and I paddled upstream on the Ghost Section of the Wolf River in Western Tennessee to the Ghost River swamp. We saw the broad buttressed trunk of a Tupelo Tree. At one point we had trouble paddling upstream through a narrow swift section and got water into the kayak. As we pulled the kayak on a sand spit to dump out the water, we had a surprise encounter with a snake! Overall a great trip! Lots of adventure. Part 2 coming soon!

While visiting my mother in law in South Florida, we decided to go to Butterfly World in Coconut Creek. We were amazed to step into the butterfly enclosure and be immediately surrounded by all colors of butterflies! It was quite an amazing experience.

While visiting my mother in law in the Ft. Lauderdale area, Amy and I walked to the nearby shops, got an iced coffee and sat in the plaza watching the fountain, the beautiful palm trees swaying in the wind, the cute little birds and the other people hanging out, just relaxing, playing cards, and having a drink. It was a very relaxing place to stop!

Thanks for watching! More Ft. Lauderdale coming soon! :)

My daughters and I visited the University of Memphis to see the Turtle Island Quartet. The campus is always so pretty to visit in the evening and there were lots of trees in bloom. The string quartet was wonderful, the players so expressive, playing all different kinds of music, combining modern and classical, often their own compositions. Definitely worth listening to. See their webpage below. University of Memphis offers many concerts to the public, many for free. It was a great experience!

While visiting my mother in law in March in the Ft. Lauderdale area, Amy and I decided to walk on the beach. It was a beautiful 80 degree F day, partly sunny, big waves crashing. Several people were on the beach enjoying the water and sand and some were brave enough to swim!

Thanks for watching. More Ft. Lauderdale soon!
