I'm spending the weekend in Sunshine State where, ironically, it's raining. Severe thunderstorms rolled through the Everglades this morning. Last time I was here the sleepy alligators seemed like logs, basking in the sun, but in this rainy weather, they seem more lively, swimming through the canals, eyes just above the surface, their powerful bodies moving fast. I didn't bring my laptop so I can't post photos until I get home, but mostly I've been taking pictures of birds, alligators, and palm trees. I so love the palm trees.
