    Sea turtle nesting on the beaches in central Florida is usually about June-August, hatching season is about August-October. Each female may nest several times per season. There are groups that give turtle walks during the nesting season but 1) they are highly regulated,ie., very little light, no flash photography, etc (at least the ones I am aware of. 2) apparently the best chance of seeing the nesting process is after midnight 3) there is no guarantee a single turtle will crawl up the part of the beach you are standing on for hours. Hey, but its fun anyway. As for the cows - if I'm not mistaken Florida is the largest cattle producing state east of the Mississippi River they are everywhere. Lastly, when the immense tropical storm passed by us it dropped a whopping 1.3 inches of rain - that REALLY put a dent in the almost 40 inch deficit we are currenly running since last year.

    BCK - Myakka River State Park http://www.floridastateparks.org/mya...er/default.cfm is a large and very interesting place and I wish I could have stayed longer than the few hours I had there. That canopy walkway is only 75 ft long (I think) and only four people can be on it at a time, so I imagine it's pretty hectic at more crowded times. I highly recommend it and hope there'll be more water there if you get there.
