The day before we left Florida, I took Kevin to one of my favorite places ... the St. Augustine Alligator Farm.  Not only does it have one of the most impressive displays of alligator and crocodile species in the world, it also has one of the best natural bird rookeries (a communal nesting site) in all of Florida.  Afterwards, we headed back down the coast stopping one last time along the way to enjoy the sounds of the ocean ... I really do miss Florida!!

 

We decided to play tourists and pose with a young gator ... really, I just wanted to hold one - it was so cool :-).

This is a very rare albino alligator (one of two they have there.)  They were only discovered in Louisiana in 1991.

I love to play tourist when I go on trips. Even if it's only for 1/2 a day. I'm totally jealous of the alligator farm. Hope you're having fun in FL.
