After getting back from the Keys on Thursday, Lucy and I spent the remainder of our time together "chillaxing". We had intermittent sun yesterday so we pretty much sat outside, a few short "gator watching" walks, and a few cocktails. Jeff and I did more of the same today. I actually took the video camera around the entire circumference of the park and caught a few gators on film. One baby has been hanging right by the BP all day (OK, I may have put some chicken out by the bank yesterday). I named her "Teenie" and she is now coming to the bank when I call. OOOOPS!
|Frank, Teenie's buddy.|
We also got to see "Hank" yesterday as he sunned on the opposite bank for most of the day.
Aside from the alligators, we have a pair of nesting Blue Herons right across the creek bed that have been really interesting to watch and entertaining as well.
So we spent a few very quiet (well, except for the trucks, planes, trains) days enjoying the unique Florida wildlife. Tomorrow Jeff and I are going to a swamp tour in the Everglades before we head north. Hoping to see some jumbo gators. And, no...I will not feed them anything!
