If you visit or live in Florida and go near any lake, you will inevitably see this sign:
We recently visited our son and daughter-in-law, and while we were taking a walk around the lake, we saw several of these signs. Most lakes in Florida have this same sign.
When we used to live in South Florida, on one of our trips down “Alligator Alley” we counted over 100 alligators. Of course, the kids were small enough to enjoy those kinds of games. I don’t think they’d enjoy it as much now that they’re adults! Maybe some of you are saying, “I would!” — probably those of you who have never seen an alligator.
We used to live on a small lake and people would say, “Oh, go ahead and swim, there aren’t any alligators here.” I knew better because I’d live in Florida before. Sure enough, after several months there, we found 2 alligators enjoying themselves, just floating and sun bathing in different yards each day.
If you ever visit Florida, go to the beaches (they’re beautiful!!)
but be careful when swimming in lakes
…unless you take the Wildman with you, or one of the guys
on the show Swamp People.
