Well, not technically in our front yard. More like our extended side yard. This guy was trying to hide out and not be seen by us. He was a smallish gator, maybe four feet or so. Nathan was able to grab some shots of him before he swam away.
It always cracks me up when people ask me if there are alligators in the river here. This is the equivalent to asking me if it will get hot in the summer. We are in Florida and it is water. There will be alligators. We rarely see them from land though so it is nice when we can get some pictures of them.
I am probably making my mother-in-law very nervous by now, so I'll quit for today.
"Our aim in education is to give a full life. We owe it to them to initiate an immense number of interests. Life should be all living, and not merely a tedious passing of time; not all doing or all feeling or all thinking - the strain would be too great - but, all living; that is to say, we should be in touch wherever we go, whatever we hear, whatever we see, with some manner of vital interest."
