Wordless Wednesday With Linky – Everglades Holiday Park

by Dagmar Bleasdale on September 9, 2015

027a So, summer is almost over — are you ready?

Landon and I enjoyed the last overpriced frozen yogurt at King Kone a day before he headed back to school.

We had such a wonderful summer that it was bittersweet to send him off.

We went to Germany the first 10 days of the summer vacation, after that L went to camp and a tennis clinic, plus running camp, and then we ended our summer by visiting Hollywood, Florida, for five days.

Here are a few pictures of our trip to the Everglades Holiday Park, home of the TV show Gator Boys.

Don and L went on an airboat tour to see alligators.

It was super hot, can you tell from L’s hair? Not something you can avoid if you visit Florida in the summer.

We watched an alligator show with “nuisance” alligators — alligators that show up at people’s homes.

They either get killed or end up living in a place like this one, where the goal is to educate people about alligators.

Did you know that alligators can stay under water for up to six hours, and that the longest alligator was over 19 feet long? Whoa.

I would have liked to have L home for another month. Or two.

He was ready to go and looking forward to see his friends.

Every time I see those round cheeks I think of my mom’s cheeks.

Was it harder for you or for your kids to get back into the school routine?

And I’m writing guides for eBay again, and here is just one fun one :)
