Don & Sandi at "home", back in the Stockton area.

Today we visited the Everglades.  We took a 1-hour "airboat" trip through the swamp.  We had to wear ear protection due to the very loud 502-inch Chevy engine attached to the giant 3-bladed prop of the airboat.  It can really scoot along...and we really enjoyed it when he spun the boat around!

We saw a lot of birds, as well as lots of trees and bushes up close as our Captain took us through some very narrow channels.  We also saw four alligators, one being at least 12 feet long...he was BIG (and scary)!

Headed towards northern Florida in the morning; and then Alabama, Mississippi, and Louisiana.

Take care.
Don & Sandi
