    January 2016
    Next stop Naples and THE EVERGLADES... We took a ride out to Lovers Key State Park and took a stroll along the beach looking for shells and coconuts.  Sunshine and low 60's but it got a little cold out there!  Next day, warmer weather so it was off to the Everglades National Park and a boat ride through the mangrove islands out to the gulf to see the dolphins.  Along the way we saw ospreys on their nests and white pelicans (they have a 9 ft wing span and stand over 4 ft tall). No trip to the Everglades would be complete without a 425 hp airboat ride through the grass lands, so the next day it was off to Corey Billies Airboat Rides where we did see alligators in the wild, finally!
