We try to pack a lot into each vacation. We like to hike. We want to see wildlife. We like to geocache. We enjoy a historical site. We even occasionally play tourists. As a result some of our days of fun end up being a little bit of this and that. Today was one of those days. We started the day trying to reach fifty finds in Sarasota County. We were having a fun walk at a nice preserve when we spotted this armadillo. They are usually quite skittish, but this one was at least a slight bit interactive. It stayed in our general area long before finally trying to burrow out of site. Snook Haven. I'm not a big food person and don't drink, but this placed looked like a great place to stop for a meal. When we passed the restaurant, the lunch time musical act was warming up. After checking their menu, we've added it to our plans for our next visit. We missed finding the cache, but enjoyed the walk and plan for a future visit. last place we stopped on our prior vacation. We were on our way to the airport and stopped to find a few caches. We were so impressed with the birding, it was a destination for this vacation. This was a short visit packed with bird sightings and a few cache finds.

A return visit to Myakka was a guaranteed activity on vacation. The park offers a wealth of wildlife viewing with a number of geocaches available for finding. Our first stop was the fertile viewing area starting at the bridge over the Myakka River and walking the trail alongside the river. galoshes is still commonly used. It has an old movie sound about it.
Between the amazing sights of nature, we did find a few caches. The tree below had multiple decoy containers. We missed the find on our last visit, but not this time.
