|Landing in Miami|
|Rincon (corner) Criollo (Cuban food)|
We got on a tour for 25 bucks each and while we were waiting we spotted an alligator sunning himself near the path.
Soon we headed out for an awesome tour of the everglades. Out boat driver was very informative and we saw lots of stuff.
|Its very windy up there so he covers his face|
We continued on and saw quite a few alligators in the wild.
After the boat ride we were invited to go to the alligator show with the admission being part of the 50 bucks we already paid. We thought that was pretty good.
|Killer the alligator|
Both the airboat guide and this parks guy told us that alligators are not really that dangerous. They are not going to attack a human unless you stick one of your body parts in his mouth. He demonstrated how fast and hard the mouth closes by sticking a small stick in Killers mouth. It snapped shut pretty fast and with a loud snap. They are naturally afraid of humans. He did caution us not to confront and alligator if we have the choice not to however. The old wives tale that they will chase you and eat you are mostly untrue. I decided to try out the theory on Susan, and he didn't chase her just like the man said.
|I kept asking her to back up but she wouldn't|
|These guys were about 6 or 7 ft long|
We came across this palm tree with another tree or large vine growing around it. There are lots of things like this in the forest around here. So much to see.
We arrived home around 7 pm and Paul and Betty were just getting ready to leave for North Bay. We had hoped to spend a couple days with them when we got back but they got all their jobs done quicker and I imagine their business is needing them back. We will stay here in Cape Coral for a couple days to get rested up from our holiday!!!
