Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve

Today we visited several sites within the Timucuan Ecological & Historic Preserve. The visitor center at Fort Caroline.

The Civil War display.

Then we headed behind the visitor center to the French Memorial Trail.

A Great Blue Heron.

A Dragonfly pic for Jessica.

A lizard pic for David.

Heading to Fort George Island.

Heading back a narrow road to the Ribault Club.

It was so humid my camera fogged up.

Ribault Club & visitor center.

Then we headed down another narrow road to the Kingsley Plantation.

The slave quarters.

The summer kitchen & house servant quarters.

Heading to the main house.

We couldn't go into the house because we missed the tour.

The view from the front yard of the plantation.

The bird you see is a bald eagle.

There is a bald eagle on the stump & a blue heron behind the log.

The displays inside the barn.

One last view of the main plantation house. We also visited their gift shop where we learned from the park employee all about sea island cotton & how hard the saves had to work.

The garden at the plantation.

After this we headed back to the hotel with a quick stop at the Apple store!
