|one of the many duckblinds out in the lake. We are here two weeks after duck season closed. Good thing...we might've been mistaken for the grandaddy-of-all-ducks!|
|Spanish Moss everywhere!|
It's winter so the gators are mostly hibernating but we did see this one sunning on a log.
|To the left of the angled wood in the water, in the far distance is the gator...|
|...closer...he's (she's) right about the log in the water, almost even with Kim's brim.|
|...middle from right to left and off center a tad from top to bottom...about a 5-6 footer.|
I spotted him as we approached from the other direction. I told Kim where it was located on the large log above the water. "Where?", she replied. Then, all of a sudden, her whole body went stiff . "I think she just spotted it", I thought. "Whoa", was all she could say...and then..."We can go now!"
Pretty cool to be right out in the swamp poking around and then, to come across a gator....terrific.
See you next in Texas!
