Okay, I'll confess here if I haven't done so already, I was not enjoying Florida like I thought I would. I won't go into depth as to why except to say too much like California. But once we were in the Everglades, Florida redeemed herself. Our first stop along Highway 41 that crosses the State was at the The Smallest Post Office in the United States at Ochopee. It unfortunately didn't rank world class status as did the Worlds Smallest Police Station.
I pulled the Would you like a picture of your entire family? gig like I mentioned in this post on a group of Germans while there and the man who was the only one who spoke any amount of English got payback on me with this.
A nearby I saw this sign and got excited. Oh how I wanted to see one.
A bit further was the Skunk Ape Headquarters which I only found this scene photo-worthy, or maybe I was just too excited about getting into the thick of the Glades and find some alligators.
Sinbad is always intent on going out for a walk at camp.
It just so happen that there was an alligator just on the other side of those bushes.
It was a four to five foot bank down and I didn't let Gatorbait get any closer than this.
Right after this shot he had had enough of me and bolted into the water.
The incredible speed of this animal was amazing.
I'm not as close as it seems. Zoom lenses are my friend.
Sinbad does not like to get anywhere close to water anyway.
He'd rather smell the flowers.
