Morris Family

Morris Family

The Morris family was full of adventure. Jeff, Shannon, Julia, Anna, Adrian(AJ My little buddy) and John the explorer were open to whatever came our way. We started our trip with a walk in the sea grass. The girls were finding live lightning whelks and having a blast learning about their ecosystems. While walking the grass flats we saw four manatees. Next it was off to a barrier island where we walked the beach and explored the backcountry. They all enjoyed seeing different fish bones and a rare morph reddish egret. We also sampled some of the local fauna. I enjoyed exploring with this family very much especially with my buddy A.J. and her little brother John.
