Family Fun Saturdays
Last Saturday we went to a local swamp. My favorite part was our canoe ride through water-lily infested waters (seriously. you get mired in the lilies). The water is black from the tree sap. It isn't really that deep. I saw one wild alligator in the distance, but it quickly submerged and all the family could see were the bubbles.
We walked through the gardens, enjoyed the butterfly house and reptile "zoo," and watched the captive alligators get fed. It looked like the keeper was throwing whole, raw, chickens into their pond. Do they ever choke on bones?
