We anchored behind Drigger Island...Saw a big gator on our way in..
Jim spotted this big one swimming.
I like these turtles...
An Osprey having lunch
This is a Great Blue Heron....it stands about 5' tall
Back through the canal
Here is another big one....got to be at least 12'-13'
The Elusive Limpkin....Diane's favorite bird.
How about this guy....look at the size of the mouth.
Jim got a charge out of the way this big one was sunning.
This one is not as big as the others...but still could do damage.
another good sized gator
Now here is one that would make you want to jump right in the water and go swimming...LOL
Same gator...different view...just look at those teeth. We see so many people on pontoon boats just jump in the water ....I don't think we would....not after seeing so many big ones.
We got to our anchorage around noon...these two were checking each other out....decided not to sit around all afternoon so headed to the ramp and pulled out.....a great 2 days on the water and lots of big gators. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!
The Hudson has towed this camper over 11,000 miles.....Michigan, NY,VT,NH and places in between. It was a great trip...In MI we even woke up with frost on the Hudson...
We traveled the Skyline Drive....35 mph uphill and downhill and around the peaks....it runs into the Blue Ridge Parkway...45 mph...lots of pull offs on both roads for the views.
How do you like the mask...When we built the garage it was for our tractor..we were going to have a Needle Palm business. We built it with a roll up door at each end so you could drive in and out the other side...also makes for a nice breeze.
We left a section at the top open ...Jim screened it to keep birds out but they worked one end open...every now and then he finds a Carolina Wren nest in his shelves.
looking pretty good...
still wet so pretty shiny....time for a break...
washing up the white wall tires....
now it is ready for head lights....turn signals...bumper and trim
I kinda like it like this.....starting to look more satin than shiny.
