The Everglades: A Photo Essay March 14, 2021 Jill Bless8 Comments It always starts out fun! The three of us on bikes ready to ride a 15 mile loop in the Everglades. Tim and I brought our bikes 1,000 miles on the back of our car. We had a $20 rental for Luke-one speed, pedal brakes, cushioned seat (which comes in handy later in the day!) Not even 100 yards down the trail and we see our first alligator. Sunning himself on the grassy bank. Look closely and you will see a nest of babies. They looked so cute. Little did we know mama was close by. She quickly emerged from the bank. Crawling up to make sure we weren’t getting too close to her precious ones. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. They were everywhere you looked! The landscape was beautiful. Happy to be making memories with Luke on his last high school spring break.
