Dec 20th: From Key Largo to Fort Myers
The drive to Fort Myers took us back past The Everglades again and onwards to 'Alligator Alley', which is the part of the freeway that runs along the edge of Big Cypress National Park. It was incredible, we spotted the first couple of alligators and Jake and I were glued to the windows! We began to count how many we saw and in less than 20 minutes, we reached 100 and stopped counting. The water was separated from the road by a very sturdy metal fence but the alligators were clearly visible, some were so big, Dave was even able to glimpse them whilst driving. It was a really great experience, so glad we spend our journeys looking out the windows and observing the wonders of the changing landscape.
