Skimming Through The Everglades

 

walkmiamiMom and dad had allotted  3 days to see all the sights in Florida.  They had spent most of their holidays living it up in Georgia.  One day had gone and so it meant our travellers had two days to see what they could.                                                                            shokszmcropMom and dad quickly got outta Miami and headed for anywhere else!  They drove past the airport a couple of times and both admired the size of the airport.   At this point dad decided to use the GPS as they  wanted to see something different.  Makes sense…go for it dad.  So he asked mom where she wanted to go.  Mom decided she wanted to go on an air boat ride through the Everglades and look at the wildlife.  Dad thought this was a cool idea so off they flitted in their rented Fiat.                                                              a4smExcitement went through the car at the unique sign.  They hadn’t seen a sign like this before.  No crocs though…except for mom…MOL  They must be getting close…

There it is!!  Gator Park.    Kinda touristy.  Off they went to act like the tourists they were.                                                                  a3zmThey both got t-shirts that had an alligator on the front and said, “Bite Me.”

There’s the air boat they rode in.

airboatWhoa, this is some kind of boat!!  Bet its fast.

a3smOh my!!  Hope there aren’t any snakes….I hate snakes!  Slimy, cold thingies.

allie2smMom is sorry for the blurriness of the picture but she got excited and didn’t take time to focus properly.  At least she’s honest about her screw ups.                                                            aaa2These are Mr. Google’s water lilies.  Mom could not get a picture close enough to show the detail in the lilies.  These water lilies only open half way…they never completely open and only grow in the deepest part of the water.

azmBig bugg…guy!  Apparently these brutes live for 30 to 50 years.

Mom said she really liked this waterfall and after the boat ride was very relaxing.                                                                         alsm       You looked way better before the air boat ride mom and dad!  Holy cwap, this seeing different locations looks hazardous to one’s health.

Here mom have a mint julep, it will eliminate the vapours you seem to have…..very badly.                                                           aaaThere you have it.  Day two in Florida is coming to a close.  They have one more day…what will they do?  We’ll see next installment my friends.                                                         Kali and Shoks

    First, snakes are not cold or slimy. Mommy and my peeps brothers used to play with them, so she knows. Personally, I stay away. Your peeps looked a bit “snappish” after their day with the gaters. (BOL, I made a funny!) The airboat looks like a blast. Glad they got home ok, looking like themselves again after they recovered from whatever disease they brought with them.

      Really? Then why does mom get all cold after touching them. They seem slimy to mom but I guess you’re right…their skin is yucky….I agree. Mom used to have a friend that loved snakes and her snake would wrap itself around her neck. Not for us but whatever floats your boat is fine with us.

      MOL…You are pretty clever kitties. They have one day to go and they haven’t been to Hemingway House. Wonder if they can make it to HH? hehe Their last evening in Florida was funny to me…that’s cause I wasn’t experiencing it.

      MOL…I can just see dad running and a gator snapping away behind him…MOL That’s right Horatio Caine rode on an air boat….he always looked so conceited….at least mom thought so. A good run from a gator would wipe that conceited look off his face. MOL Mom says the airboat was very noisy….they even give everyone ear plugs buts its very noisy still and windy…mom’s hair was standing on end at the end of the boat ride…she really didn’t want to show that picture. Talk about vain mom!! MOL

      Think Ladymum is way braver than our mom….mom has no desire to touch any wildlife…she goes by the statement, ‘leave no trace’ when we are in the wild. Pictures are good….touching the area is interfering. Cat Scouts has taught mom a lot.

      Kitty Kisses,
