To say the hubster and I have been busy since December 31st, is to say “the sky is blue.” I think we have redefined the word.
One treat we gave ourselves was a winter respite to Marco Island, FL which is south of Naples and is on the Gulf of Mexico. The weather was unbelievably beautiful; warm with highs of 81, clear blue skies, and blue green water.
Here are some photos for you to enjoy.
The above photo gives you a good look from our balcony. We overlooked the pool area and the beach. The sand was so white! I collected some beautiful shells.
This is one of the beautiful sunsets we viewed each night. Incredible!
Here is yours truly holding a 28 month old alligator. Yes, he mouth was rubber-banded shut! He has 800 teeth! Do you think I am nuts?!?! Did you know that an alligator’s tongue is attached to the bottom of his mouth? That is so he doesn’t bite it off!
Here I am, once again, making friends with a white cockatoo. He likes to snuggle and have his back scratched. I was amazed at how friendly he was!
The above photo is of a big Mommy alligator in her natural habitatin the Everglades. She was HUGE and mistook the branch for a snack!
We met Mr. Pelican on his perch when on a fan-boat ride through the Everglades. What a silly looking bird he was.
In all it was a lovely time. Hopefully I will have some photos of the wave-runner tour Phil and I took when we came across a pod of dolphins.
It’s nice to be home. Classes start tomorrow!
