I am so happy we stopped here even though it was raining! The water lilies were gorgeous, the ibis was a big surprise, and I only wish we could have stayed a little bit longer.

Beautiful walk through the swamp, spotted a baby alligator. Signs provide interesting facts about the trees and wildlife. We were pleasantly surprised how much we enjoyed our visit including climbing to the top of the tower for a great view.

We enjoyed the walk through the wetlands and the view from the tower at the end. We didn't see very many birds but the greenery was nice. Yes we would do this again.

My boyfriend took me out to Grand Bay as a surprise. It's gorgeous and quiet. Because it was chilly we didn't see much wildlife, but it was still an amazing adventure. I also suggest climbing to the top of Kinderlou Tower! It's a breathtaking veiw.
