Nature at Kingsley Plantation

Kingsley Plantation is located near the mouth of the St. Johns River and is surrounded by thick forests, so there is plenty of nature to enjoy.

This looks like such a beautiful place that you visited! I've never seen an Armadillo outside of the zoo before. Such a crazy looking animal! :)
