Phew - I have added yet another park to MY ever growing list of places under the care of MY protective paw. Today we went to check out the the Dutton Island Preserve now renamed the Dutton Island Cowspotdog Preserve :) Mom actually stumbled on this place by accident as it doesn't show up on Google Maps as a park but while browsing the Florida Parks web page she came across a list of 'preserves'. We are not sure what the difference is between a 'park' and a 'preserve' is as this place has camping, fishing, picnic facilities and LOTS of walking trails and areas where you can take your canoe and paddle through all the water ways. It sure seems like a park to us :) Not only are there lots of walking trails to follow there are cool boardwalks and Mom's most favorite thing - BRIDGES. And check our what else we found - these are native wild iris's and they were growing in patches all over the preserve - aren't they just so pretty.
