So it has now been about 1 month since we left for vacation... & I'm finally getting to finishing up our trip wrap up!
So after finishing up in the Keys, our next adventure awaited in the Everglades. We hit the Ernest F. Coe Visitor Center first thing to find out what a newbie to the Everglades should take in. We followed the advice of our visitor's center volunteer & headed to Royal Palm as our first stop. It was filled with alligators & birds along our boardwalk path... & this was the first alligator siting of our visit! (but not the last... and as Mike will tell you, I probably took over 100 pictures of alligators & crocodiles alone! I never actually counted as I didn't need to quantify his mocking of my gator addiction! But it is about the closest thing to seeing a dinosaur as we'll ever get... you gotta admit they are pretty cool!)
