I was here back in December and did the Boggy Creek Airboat Rides and it was fun then (Finding Alligators In Florida Wetlands Boggy Creek Airboat Rides), and it was even better now. The weather was warmer the sun was out and it felt great. I loved the feeling of the sun and wind going through my hair. Living in Seattle is not my favorite aspect of my life. I miss the sunshine for at least 9 out of 12 months of the year so today was a refreshing soothing bask in the sun on an air boat.
The marsh was lower than it was back in December, Florida could use a little rain but the alligators didn’t seem to mind. We found on of the mommy alligators not too far from her babies. She was giving them some time to play unsupervised, well partially unsupervised. She was close enough to come scare away a predator, but she was far enough away they probably felt some independence. (not that I’m an alligator expert though, who knows that they were doing) Maybe they had a fight and mom needed a time out. I often need a time out myself when it comes to parenting. Parenting is HARD stuff!
Mostly since I’ve done this before I enjoyed the company of my friends, seeing the birds flying around and the thrill of finding alligators that never gets old. I’ve been trying to tell my friends at home that I work on these trips but they keep telling me yeah right, you can’t convince us of that. Well look at this, this is the bloggers sitting down at the picnic table working away as we’re trying to make our twitter goal. We do really work.
Of course they were also waiting on the little alligator to make an appearance. Thank you goes to Disney Global Resort Homes, Kissimmee CVB and Boggy Creek Airboat Rids.
