Finally...an Airboat Ride


We have been coming down here for eight years, now, and since year one we have wanted to take an airboat ride through this or that marsh.  Finally, this year, when the youngest son was down here visiting we did it!
We saw this camp from the Beachline Highway from Orlando to the Beaches and thought about it for several days.  It was a bit of a drive back but well worth it.  Reasonable charge and they threw in a beer for each of us.  I, for one, was glad for a little something to bolster my courage. 

We went in an 11-person boat but only had, maybe eight in it.  I was NOT about to take my good Canon Rebel camera on that boat so these photos are all taken with a little Canon ELPH.
I shouldn't have worried.  The boat had earmuffs to deaden the sound, but other than that it was comfortable and not at all a rough ride.  I could have taken my SLR camera with no problem and if we ever go again, I will.
We were there to see alligators

and we certainly did!
BIG fella!

Wouldn't mind the airboat ride, but the alligators would be something different.
