Take a Bite Out of Life Florida Style!

Gomek and LarryLife takes us to unexpected places, so I’m writing to you from Florida. This is the first time in 16 years that my husband and I have been alone on a vacation. Being the endless romantic I asked him what he wanted to see. He said an alligator farm. Giggles.  That is my husband with Gomek, a preserved alligator who was 18 feet long and 2,000 pounds.

The rest of the alligators are very much alive.  The Alligator Swamp and Wading Bird Rookery was amazing. You see it is baby time in Florida. With alligators below in the swamp, gorgeous birds such as the Roseate Spoonbill, egrets, herons, and storks are nesting. Some of the nests have eggs in them while others have little birds. Imagine trees all around you in a huge place with 10 to 12 nests in every tree. The air filled with chirping baby birds. One egret couple was frantically working to build a nest.  I was particularly fascinated by the Albino Alligators and the Komodo Dragons.

I’ll write again soon about the adventures of my sweetie and me. Where has life taken you?
