We spent yesterday traveling S. Another stop at Shrimp R Us for a late lunch/supper. It was too hot to stay at the dock so continued on to Silver Glen Springs.

We anchored closer to the entrance than we normally do. We saw a 9’ gator sunning in that area a month or so ago and I was hoping it would cruise by for a photo shoot…..we didn’t see the big one but this little 5-6 footer was nearby sunning itself.037cs

We didn’t see many gators this trip, but the Painted Turtles are everywhere. This one swam up to our boat a couple of times.027cs

This one is enjoying the sun…looks like it’s getting ready for take-off.


Even though the big gator didn’t come around…we were glad we anchored there. Jim spotted this Manatee by our dingy.236cs


She swam around and under the dingy and then the boat…and headed back to the lake. The surfaced for air right by the dingy but I was heading for the camera at the time. They have cute little faces.
