Kim's Quick Visit to So.Florida

Roadtrip with Uncle Bill to the Everglades was great! Thanks Uncle Bill for driving. Here we are in Flamingo, Florida. The furtherest southwest point in the everglades by car.
The Royal Palm visitor center is a great place to see tons of wildlife. We were shocked at how close the alligators were to us and the walkway.
The 1/2 mile walkway at Royal Palm is called the Anhinga trail. Here's a great shot of the Anhinga bird posing for a picture.







Loggerhead turtle.

Purple gallinule and another anhinga.
Thank you Scott and Alex for hosting a delicious dinner party on Friday night. I had such a good time catching up with everyone that I forgot to take pictures. I hope to be back soon to Florida and next time with my honey, Chris.

I know I missed Auntie Ann and my moms brother, Tommy, this trip. I was only there for 3 nights. I'm hoping that Chris and I can find time to go back together to see everyone.

Nice job with the post Kim. It is amazing how close you can get to the wildlife in the Everglades. The group pic is courtesy Scott. It was great to see Aunt Jane, Tom and yourself down our way for a "cool" time in Florida. The dinner on Friday was a very nice time..thank you Alex n Scott.
