Spring memories – Florida, Part I

The summer looks still faraway. So I realized there are still many photos hidden on my hard disc I did not share yet from our trip to Florida in May. You might notice the few pictures of Miami I posted here before.

Of course we also did Everglades, NP – one of the great biological wonders of the world.

The exceptional variety of its water habitats has made it a sanctuary for a huge number of birds and reptiles, as well as for threatened species such as the manatee. Unfortunately we have not been lucky enough to take a photo of manatee. We have chased them successfully, but every time they were just about to hit the surface of the water they simply have decided not to show off. On the other hand we have seen many alligators when on the boat and crocodiles just along the way driving there.

  2. Suzi, I’m thrilled that you have experienced the “real” Florida (the natural Florida.) We (Floridians) have to get use to and respect the gators because they are in our rivers and lakes, which means we have them frequently in our back yards. I have several stories I could tell about my experiences with gators. They purr and growl, and male gators (bulls) roar–similar sound to a lion’s roar.
    Have you ever visited any of Florida’s natural springs?
