Are we there yet? Is it time to fly south?!
Frak no. I still have a 1 page summary of Key Brazilian environmental facts due tomorrow AND the stupid Thesis of Doom outline due Friday.
I hope we get to see near as much wildlife when you are here! I'm so worried you guys will come and all the animals will vanish!
Of course they will vanish. I'll be there with my camera. That is totally guaranteed. :-)
So I can blame you, then?
They really are! I bought an annual pass to the park, so there will be more pictures to come in future months. I can't wait to go during rainy season (on a dry day, even though it'll be miserably hot) to see everything when it's green!
You'd think the gators would be really scary, but they're so not. The guide said they've never had an attack on a human in the history of the park, despite the few daring idiots who have ridden over gators' tails with their bikes, stood on them for pictures, etc. They're just very indifferent to human presence.
We have crocs too, but not in that part of the park. I admit, they might make me a bit nervous.
That's AWESOME! eeeeeeee!!! I can't WAIT!
I hope we get to see some animals on the airboat ride. We should definitely catch some bird life while canoeing, but it'd be awesome to see some gators and turtles out on the boat.
that scares me and excites me at the same time! You and Jenn are going to have to take pictures for me. Definitely.
Do you seriously think you could stop me? *grin*
Well... NO. But I just have to make sure I get the pictures and claim them as MINE after! *grin*
I could probably secure a point-and-shoot camera for you to use, now that I think of it. Shall I?
A digital one? If you can, that'd be awesome. I have a film camera I could bring, I'm just debating whether it'll be worth it.
Yeah, a digital. I'd be willing to bet I could talk my mom out of hers for a few days. Only thing is, I don't have a dry bag so we can't take it in the boat. (Unless you have one?)
Um, I do actually. (shocked?) I hadn't thought about bringing it but I'll try to remember.
Not shocked at all. :-) Is it a huge one or a small one? I've been trying to find one the right size just for my camera, phone, etc. but everywhere I go only seems to have these really large ones!
I replied to this! Weird. I have a small(ish) one that I'll try to remember to bring and I'll try to remember to pick up a small one for you next weekend!
Oh, gosh! You're so awesome. I will reimburse you. That's just too cool.
Beautiful pictures. Thank you for sharing.
Thank you! I'm so glad to have you all to share them with. No one here cares. My hubby is like "Gators? Whatever." We're so blasè.
I love seeing them - I've worked at nature preserves near the Everglades before, so that reminds me of my time there.
Really? How cool! Where at?
At the Conservatory of Southwest Florida in Naples. I was an intern there one summer. It was a lot of fun.
Hmmm. I haven't heard of that. I'll have to look it up.
