Dauphin Island Wildlife

It was Michael's little dream to catch a frog while we were on vacation.  JP caught this toad (?)  and Michael was so happy to hold it in his hand.  Daddy also caught one of the many little lizards around our condo and let it run up Michael's life jacket.  I freaked out in the background.  

 Ghost or sand crabs

 A loggerhead turtle nest with empty eggshells all around.

 An egret and turtles in the bird sanctuary

A seagull or as JP so fondly calls them...the cockroach of the sea.

 Blue Herons

 A heron footprint next to JP's footprint.

On our last day, we saw dolphins really close to the beach as well as tons of moon jellyfish.  If we had not been walking on the beach because of the jellyfish, we would never have seen the dolphins.  Tera called it a blessing in disguise.  It truly was!
