Saturday on the Gator Gal

Today we went to Myakka River State Park to ride the air boat and look for alligators.

That is a great outing/excursion. If you go in cooler weather, e.g. November to April, you'll most likely see even more 'gators. In hot weather they stay under water to be cooler.

Reason # 347 to live in Oregon: We have blue herons WITHOUT the gators.

What a great looking crew you've got there. Is it just me, or is R8 the spitting image of your husband? :)

This brings back happy memories! We honeymooned in Sarasota and took a ride on the Gator Gal one afternoon. Didn't see many gators, but the guide pointed out the many marsh hens and anhingas about. (We learned that anhingas are the non-waterproof waterfowl. They have to spread their wings to dry out after a dip in the water.)

LOVE the pic of the boys. Adorable. I wish we could have joined you on the hunt. I think my boys would have gone C R A Z Y! They get excited about looking for ants.

about two years ago, i casually mentioned that you had to be careful when you swim in a lake because of the alligators. after he stopped laughing, he informed me that alligators are regional. i just assumed that lakes=alligators. i still find it hard to believe that there are lakes without gators.

That looks like a lot of fun.

Great looking boys! I know my boys would of loved to see gators!

oh how wonderful! So glad you got to go 'gator hunting' with the boys - you can't do that in many places!! Back in the world of heat, humidity and crazy wildlife. Makes me want to go read some Carl Hiaasen. :)
