'The rain has moved on and today was a perfect day here – sunny, high 60’s to start the day and mid 80’s for a high. Since we didn’t make it to Key West, we decided on a little trip over into the Everglades, with a stop off at Hoot’s for brunch. This time I had corned beef hash and my girls had a reuben and a burger (Bev needed her fix). Here’s mine – hash served with hash browns was a definite first.
Bev kept saying let’s go a little farther and fortunately, we just ran into the visitors center for the Big Cypress National Preserve. We first walked along their boardwalk and took these shots – the fish are Florida gars and the alligators are free to come and go from the pond. I didn't realize the gators were black - these are in the 6'-8' range.
As non Florida bird watchers, the only one we could name was the white egrets and they were everywhere.
After walking the boardwalk, we went inside the visitors center and got lot’s of good info from the young lady ranger. So I’ll end the tour here and pick it up with a second post tomorrow.
As an aside, I really enjoyed the ocean breezes through the Florida condo, but now that I'm home the little breeze through the opened up house on a 75* day is awfully nice as well.
Have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
