We decided to drive to the Everglades to get a look at some gators. Living in SW Florida you must visit the Everglades, it is a natural beauty paradise. The weather this spring has been hot so far, this is our first year down here and we know it will only get hotter and hotter. This day was HOT, we pretty much stayed in our car the whole time. We came upon the alligator here with the crazy birds eating it up. The birds were all over the trees, it was pretty creepy.
The birds were having a field day with the alligator. It was interesting watching the pecking order, the birds just waited their turn.
It was pretty dry, but the view was incredibly beautiful. I wanted so badly to walk into this beautiful lush woody area. BUT the first thing we were told, do NOT get out of your car and get off the road. Well we did get out of the car to take pictures but all I could think of was a large Florida Panther running out of the woods!…
