Last week the kids and I joined a large group of our friends for a nature walk in and around some of the causeways and bayous. We got to encounter quite a bit of wildlife. Lots of birds, frogs, bugs, turtles and our very first alligator sighting. He was about 4 1/2 to 5 feet in length and swam right up to the dock we were on. Good thing the dock had a deck railing all the way around it.
Now that we know where to find them, the kids and I might have to go hunting for more alligator sightings.
