Happy May Everyone! Spring is pretty much over here in Florida and the temps are hot, hotter, and even hotter already. This is the time of the year the Snowbirds are packing up and summer-izing their homes. While I am really going to miss them, it will be nice to be able to drive a few miles and not have it take hours. 🙂 Safe travels and See you all next year.
It has been a few weeks since I have posted- the eye thing….and I am just now getting to photos I took a few weeks back in April. Once again I had visitor’s who wanted to see some gators, and while I have found a few good spots (as you have seen in past posts), there is only one place to find gators up close and personal and that is Gatorland Florida.
I know many people have mixed emotions when it comes to animals in captivity- it is still the best way to see animals that you have not seen or been exposed to. Gatorland is that place in the Orlando area. Owned and operated by the Godwin family since 1949, they have a water park, an alligator breeding marsh, Screaming Gator Ziplines (7) and are home to literally hundreds of different kinds of birds and animals. They even have their own bar-b-q house called Pearls. Gatorland is a great value for the price, especially in this area, where tourist just means you pay triple, but not only that it is a great family fun place. One where anyone can learn about our surrounding everglade environment.. and what lurks within it. 🙂
As always I hope you enjoyed this Gatorland adventure.
