The test of an adventure is that when you are in the middle of it, you say to yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess; I wish I were sitting quietly at home." And the sign that something is wrong with you is when you sit quietly at home wishing you were out having lots of adventure. -Thornton Wilder

The nice thing about being confused is you get a chance to notice things a lot better than if you knew where you were going.

More Alligators

Everglades, Florida

I think alligators have become my favorite animal to photograph.

They sit still.

Can you see me?

Imagine walking along that path staring down at your iPhone composing a text message.


  1. Most people never cross an alligator on their path in reality but imaginary a lot. I prefer the first kind but can not always avoid the second one.

  2. Not bad, you have some very pretty pictures of them. I am still amazed you just can meet them in the wild, lucky you.

  3. My hubby tells of running across these guys sometimes when golfing in the south. Good shots!

  4. laughing at your last thought! they just look so steely / leathery / prehistoric. :)

  5. I visited the Everglades way back in 1980 and loved the place... doing all the tourist stuff... air boats etc.
    I would really like to go back knowing what I know today.

  6. I think I see your reflection. Better watch out while texting and walking with the alligators.

  7. John,
    I was 'okay' until I read the last line in the post :)

    Peace :)

  8. Im so glad you are taking these pictures so I can see these critters from afar.

  9. I just hate to think about it...though, might be good to have some in the back of cars. LOL

  10. They don't look real to me...but I have never seen on except in photos. ;)
