Last day of the dry season

They only have two seasons in Florida each year - wet and dry. If you have been keeping up with the blog, you will know that it has already started raining over here, and today is the official last day of the most popular (dry) season.
The wet season is much less pleasant or popular, as we have found out. It is very wet, hot and humid, although at least the rain has stopped for the past couple of days.
We are now getting very blasé about seeing alligators as they appear absolutely everywhere. Today was slightly different though, as we also saw loads of babies sleeping in the sun.
It was very hot so most of the alligators were just lazing around, but we just missed seeing a giant one walk right across the path in front of some other visitors.
We hung about for a while hoping that it might do it again, but no such luck.
We have seen enough nature for a while now, so this afternoon we have driven right across, and then out of the other side of the Everglades on the Tamiami Trail. You might think that this is a quaint little road, but actually it is quite a big highway that links the two coasts - pic 3.
Just off now for a cooling dip in the motel pool.
