    I think I lip read, "Holy Sh..t!!!"

    That was a pretty darned big gator. I was expecting a pretty small one.

    Or a noose around there mouth...I've heard of all the dangers but never saw it. Thank God. But I did walk around them with some healthy respect. I believe at certain times of the year they aren't hunting anyway.

    Really, they are just like big logs hagging around ‘til they are hungry. They slowly sink below the surface as one approaches.

    My nephew found it for me this afternoon.
    It was somewhere I had already looked - on the floor behind my chair!
    Sometimes you need fresh eyes to find things that are right under your nose - or backside as the case may be!

    The poor alligator was probably at greater risk of choking to death on those floats!

    She sailed away on a lovely summer's day
    On the back of a crocodile,
    She said you see he's as tame as tame can be
    As they see off down the Nile.
    The croc winked an eye as the last waved goodbye
    Wearing a happy smile,
    But at the end of the tide the lady was inside,
    And smile was on the crocodile
    Snap Snap!

    Beautiful.
    Glad it's up on its feet - the first few hours are always tricky for them.

    Glad he is feeling better.
    Maybe a few days at home would make sure sees it off completely.
    Hope all went well with the physio.
    I have my first physio appointment for my leg and foot on Thursday, hope it's not too painful.

    When I was on an airboat ride in the Everglades from Coopertown the guide threw marshmallows in to attract the alligators.
    I remember thinking at the time it wasn't really a sensible thing to do as the alligators would see people as a food source.
    The sad thing is that in the event of any attack it's the poor animal that gets destroyed because of human stupidity!

    Good evening all,
    Happy to see everyone seems OK today.
    These ads are a royal pain in the butt so this is only a flying visit.
    I was going to pop in earlier today but they got on my nerves making the screen jump about when I was trying to log in.
    Anyway I'll pop in tomorrow when hopefully I'm feeling more patient!
    Nos da for now and take care.

    Yes. And a kayak is more respectful.

    I do that. It makes me frustrated at me. If you're stuck in your home...!!! it has to be there. I have stuck things places they shouldn't be like the fridge by getting distracted. Since I'm older and my eyes don't work like they used to it's even worse. I always find it after I bought another. The only good thing about that is I got some exercise by going shopping.

    Good evening All

    We got skunked out today, no, not a skunk, but tons of rain and winds and high gusts. No kayaking pix today!

    Tomorrow should be a lot better and we’ll return exploring the Ten Thousand Islands area of west Florida.
