Today, my family took an airboat to explore Tohopekaliga. It was so amazing to see nature close up like that. The experience was so cool that I had to share it with you all.
Me, my three boys and the boat captain.
I was kind of freaked out to see an alligator this close. I was so afraid it might jump onto our boat and attack it. According to our captain, this particular alligator had just laid 65 eggs so she’s very protective and aggressive. We definitely didn’t want to upset the new mommy.
We also saw lots of birds.
This one was so pretty. I loved its shades of blue.
We also had the opportunity to touch a baby alligator. In the end, I decided not to touch the alligator but now I kind of regret it. Maybe next time.
Place: Lake Tohopeakaliga, Florida.
