Florida Wildlife

I've lived along the C-14 Canal for 14 years now and never once have I seen a gator. Well that all changed this weekend. We saw a gator strolling up the canal just minding his own business. He was about 6 to 8 foot, a medium size gator for Florida.
I've seen gators in the smaller ponds around our development before but not the main canal. I always see people Jet Ski in there and kids are always jumping off the bridge into the canal.....they better watch out.

Road Trip

This time next week, we'll be in North Augusta, SC for the big Wedding!!!

YEAH we are so excited and can't wait to see my cousin Amy in her Wedding Dress. Amy will be a beautiful bride!!

The trip will be extra special because we will have all of our family together in the same place which is such a treat because we are all over the place.

We'll be leaving next Thursday for the 10 hour drive North.....ugh. Dad will be riding with us, so I am sure between Dad & Rob, I won't have a chance to say much...hee hee. That's okay I'll be doing the driving!! Check back next week for all the Pictures!!!

Rob & Dad "The Buck" in the Keys......

Once again I was left home alone, while the boys went off to the Keys for some fishing. I could have gone, but I wasn't feeling great and they probably had more fun without me because when I go, I am the one who catches the most fish!! This time Dad caught the most but Rob caught the biggest.

Here's great Rainbow shot he cool
Open Water
Can you see the rain coming...
