It was exciting to see the wild horses. You have to get off the beaten trail to get a photo of them! (thanks hubby)

We saw this ‘cute’ little baby alligator down below the boardwalk.

Ackkkk...that baby gator could take your foot off! ☺ How close were you to him? Now see? This is why I live in Maine. I must remind myself of these things. Oh those horses are so pretty with their glossy coats in all that green, green field. Quite a sight!

I think you need a 'don't bite me' spray for gators down there!

Robyn said...

Wow! What a beautiful area and your photos were fantastic! Loved your outfit :)... Um yep, Im am VERY sure mama alligator was not far away.. Good thing she didnt show up!

Cheryl @ TFD said...

Watch those little tootsies around those gators! It looks like a beautiful walk, with wild horse and alligator sightings. I would never have guessed that wild horses roamed in FL if not for another blogger mentioning it!

Beautiful place! I love my TEVA's and they are my hiking shoes also! In fact I need a new pair to take to Paris! Hope you had a great Mother's Day! Hugs, Linda

Wild horses sound lovely but the baby alligator looked anything but baby size! Ouch! I shudder to think of Mum's size...
Must inquire about the bug repellant...mosquitoes have appeared and look to be on steroids!
All the best,

I am so jealous. You and your hubby do the neatest things. All in your own "backyard". Looks like another lovely day.
