Dutton Island Cowspotdog Preserve

Today we went to MY Dutton Island Cowspotdog Preserve -  it has been a while since we  visited but we have a good reason as to why we haven't been. You see, the last time we were there Mom (and us) - were attacked by SWARMS of mosquitos - HUGE GIGANTIC BLOOD SUCKING VAMPIRE type  mosquitos!!!! The preserve is on the intercostal waterway and because it is brackish water - it is also a huge mosquito breeding area. Now even though it was bright and sunny it was also quite cold and as you know the mosquitos are not fond of the cold so we figured it was safe to visit again. We were very pleased to see MY staff have been doing some work at the preserve and have added a number of these very nice picnic areas. The intercostal waterway is also very popular with canoers as the waters are always calm and that is what we were watching - a guy walking towards us with a canoe on his shoulders - we weren't quite sure what to make of him and didn't like the idea that he was coming onto MY dock. Thankfully at the last moment he headed down the boat ramp instead - a good thing he did as we all KNOW how the Dweeb reacts to strange things and Mom was would worried he would back up right off the end of the dock :)

  1. You shouldn't worry Dweeb...ahem...Denny! Mr. Reilly would have protected you against the advance of the canoe head!

  2. it's a nice place... but when it is haunted by vampires... maybe you can wear a garlic necklace and it's better to bring a stick when you visit this area of your kingdom?

  3. BOL Oh, that Dweeb of yours, Reilly. I have been canoeing in the Intracoastal in several places but up by you, in Anastasia State Park is where our canoe trip was accompanied by dolphins. What fun that was! I hope you are staying warm up there...it is 39 here so I know it must be colder up by you.

  6. I think a canoe could be frightening! I'm sure at least one of the collies would have been very suspicious of the canoe too.

  9. We think a walking canoe would be very strange looking.

    SHE was attacked by HUGE Mutant mozzies in Alaska! Didn't know they migrated to FL.

    Keep Calm & Bark On!

  11. One of the (few) things our mom likes about the cold weather we get is that it kills off the bugs.
    We're glad your visit was mosquito-free this time!
    Cammie!
    PS: At least the guy didn't make you get into the canoe!

  16. Mosquitos? Sounds like MN in the summer! Mom always gets eaten alive in Fl by those little biting bugs.

  17. I am always so thankful for the colder weather because it means no mosquitoes! I'm glad that you didn't have to defend your turf. ☺
