The Swamp of Florida!

  1. I have been meaning to share these photos with you all for a while! When I was back home I had some friends come visit and decided to take them to the Everglades. The pictures are so cool- our airboat driver got us REALLY close to the gators, too close for comfort actually, but it was so much fun. Check out the pics!!

    Kinda shady location :p

    If any of you ever venture down to south Florida, I highly advise you check out the Everglades! The airboat rides are a ton of fun and it is such an experience. Just thought I'd share!!!

  10. How fabulous Megs!! Thanks for sharing!!

    I have always wanted to see the Everglades since I this one book called "Skinny Dip"...it was chick lit, but mentioned the Everglades a lot through it and ever since then I have wanted to go FL.
     
  11. hahahaha the boat!!
    Oh and the picture above it....gorgeous!!! I loooove rays of sunshine through clouds.
    All of the pics are great.
     
  12. Wow... we have gators in the lakes at my school (I'm in FL) and I've heard occasional horror stories about them attacking someone (or something) but never saw one that close up before!!!
     
  13. Gorgeous pics. But that gator is a little too close for comfort. I like my nature at a distance :biggrin: .
     
  14. LauraLee, "Skinny Dip" is not chic lit, it's Carl Hiaasen, who is hilarious!

    Megs, the pics are great; Pimpin' Aint EZ has me ROTFLMAO.
