This is something we just had to do...... Wild Willy's Air boat Rides. Yep. In a swamp, with alligators.
It was exciting!!!
There were tons of cool birds! I didn't say pretty, just cool.
I feel at home in a swamp, and cypress trees, but not with alligators!
This is the moma - below. She is big and she is hiding since it is cloudy and cool.
These are a few of her hundreds of babies in this particular nest.
Not gonna lie, I was holding tight the arm of the guide
as I leaned over the nest to take photos.
The guide was so fun, and down to earth, and nice!
We scared up more birds.
And more birds.
And more birds. I was actually surprised these look okay since we were going so fast!
We got a fun lesson on Spanish moss. FYI - it's not moss.
Happy man on a boat.
These nubbies help the tree "breathe".
I like bird photos.
The guide was so fun! And without me asking he asked for my camera, walked out in the swamp and took photos of us!
It was a blast!
|We were way more excited than we look! *smile*|
|Can you see it???|
This one was bigger than those little babies. But still a baby. A tween maybe? Four foot?
We got caught in a downpour! The guide got out ponchos for us.
We loved every minute of it anyway!
Back at the bank we got to hold one.
AS SOON AS I held this cutie I wanted to give it back ASAP!!!
I was cringing and telling Daniel to take the photo FAST!
I did NOT like holding him.
Ummm.... this is part 2 of Day 2.
Next is part 3 of Day 2.
I warned you, there are a lot of photos.
Oh! And is anyone surprised we came home with this?
