Gatorland!

I end up traveling for work quite a bit (on the weekdays, guys, don’t worry!) and often find myself with big chunks of time to explore my surrounds.  Orlando was no exception and this time I had a car!  So I headed out, at the suggestion of my lovely aunt and uncle, to the place they call Gatorland.

I was going to put interesting facts about alligators in this spot, but I’ve just realized that I learned absolutely nothing at Gatorland.  Not sure if that is entirely my fault, but it is what it is.  More pictures, then!

This is a gator feeding area!

There really were just tons and tons of gators all over the place – really close, too – but they had some other animals you could scope out.  The birds were remarkably plentiful.

(For feeding the alligators, I realized long after I took this photo.)

Seriously, how cute are these owls!

Finally, plants.  I took a little walk through their “real swamp” – very proud that it isn’t cultivated, they are.  It was swampy.  The second photo is taro, of bubble tea fame.

And that’s what I did with my afternoon yesterday.  In Chicago at David’s house now.  Hopefully I will bring you images from the windy city next!
