The Everglades and Keys

On our last couple weeks in Florida we stayed in the Fort Myers area, from there we took a day trip through the everglades and down about half way into the Keys. We stopped somewhere in the everglades to give Nora a chance to stretch her legs and have a rest from the car. We ended up at this great little museum with some displays about the local animals and how to identifying them.

Outside was an alligator viewing area along the river, we must have seen at least 10 alligators swimming or sunning themselves. Some of them were quite large.

Our first stop along the keys was this little park called Harry Harris. It had a really nice playground and swings.

This ( above ) is Anne's beach and it became a definite highlight of the trip. It was just a tiny beach of coral that we had all to ourselves. I was very glad I had extra clothes in the car for Nora; she was soaked from head to toe by the time we left.
