The Amernet Quartet, which consists of Misha Vitenson, Violin, Franz Felkl, Violin, Michael Klotz, Viola, and Jason Calloway, Cello are praised for their “intelligence” and “immensely satisfying” playing by the New York Times. Amernet has garnered recognition as one of today’s exceptional string quartets and are Ensemble-in-Residence at Florida International University in Miami.

Happy Monday! The start to another sunny week in South Florida and the weather is perfect for a walk in the Everglades. We captured this image of a Great Egret patiently hunting last week. We're excited to see what is in store for us this week on the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk.

Todays trip to the Big Cypress Bend Boardwalk was filled with sightings of wading birds and gators of all sizes! Check out our mother alligator taking a snooze in the sunshine. Not too far from mom we saw 3 hatchlings basking in the sun and 5 other gators under two feet long. Adding to the excitement a Great Egret got daringly close to the adult gator while a Wood Stork watched from a high branch. Interested in getting to experience the wildlife for yourself? Tours meet at the boardwalk, just 30 minutes from Marco Island, and start at 9 and 12 daily, book online now
