Hiking, Biking, and Bald Eagles

Today we went to Princess Place Preserve in Palm Coast. We loved this place! 
On Sundays from 10am until 1pm they have telescopes set up so you can view the bald eagles and their baby in the nest. The baby is absolutely precious.We got lucky because the parents were flying straight over our heads. There was a couple there who run the viewing program and they told us about a website called It is a site run by elementary students and they have links to live eagle cameras. These people are dedicated!!!!
Afterwards we went biking around the preserve. It didn't feel like Florida to me because the woods reminded me so much of the Appalachian trail. 
The babies liked riding in the bike trailer for the most part.
A lot of people were riding horses on the trails so Princess was thrilled to see ponies.
Princess loves finding sticks:
Son was sort of mad (even though he looks happy here). He wanted to walk like his big sister! He walks great, but he needs to pick up the pace if he wants to hike on his own:
On the way to the eagle's nest:
 This is the best I could do with my cell phone:
Ready to roll out. We were so fortunate that a friend gave us this bike trailer for free. We need to use it more: 
Sis riding fast:

There are lots of beautiful campsites here that sit on the water:
I wish we can go camping again!!!!!! The last time we went was in the summer of 2011. Princess wasn't even born yet. I was 8 months FLORIDA. Can you imagine? Here we are camping at Space view park waiting for the last shuttle launch: 
And here is the shuttle. Again, cell phone picture:
Then we went to Yogi Bear campground. This place was great. I camped there once when I was little and really wanted to go back since I had such a good memory. They have a nice military discount too. Sis and her BFF:
This is what Gizmo looks like when he has been camping!!! He just kept looking for dirt to roll around in. He was so disgustine by the time we were done:
