See Ya Later…….

Our first night camping in a somewhat desolate campground in the Everglades.  Good thing we kept JiaJia on a short leash.

This is what we saw upon awakening – looked to be about 10 ft. long

 I guess with about two million alligators living in the Florida Everglades the chances of seeing at least one are pretty high.  Did you know that Florida is the only place in the world where both alligators and crocodiles co-habit in the wild.

Tried to take a photo of a baby gator but just as I was about to snap there was a loud splash.  The mama made her presence known and I made mine disappear in a flash so sorry; no photo.  Damn…it would have been so good too.

Still want to go swimming?

Heron & Gator – still can’t believe the amount of wildlife we’ve seen here

After we left the campsite on route to Miami we saw a big turtle crossing the highway and shortly after a whole bunch of buzzards tearing apart what looked to be a very large dead python. I’ll spare you those photos.

This is a rarely seen land creature – almost extinct.

What do you get when you cross a hummer and a stretch limo?  One ugly motherhummer!
