Follow us on Facebook! Here are some additional pictures of our Wild Florida visit. Our guide Will revs up the engines! A flock of birds takes flight as we approach. Large cypress tree up Dead Man’s Creek A haunting wilderness – the swamps of the upper Everglades – Dead Man’s Creek at Cypress Lake A giant cypress tree Zipping along the open lake Yours truly posing for a pic in the captain’s chair. Would have been a blast to actually drive one of these airboats! Large turtles are also residents of the lake. One honking big alligator! And another! The zoo had a number of different species on display including these colourful parrots. This African porcupine was out for a walk on the dock with a zoo keeper earlier. There were several long-tailed lemurs. Say hello to this owl. One last look at our Wild Florida adventure – plowing through the reeds on our airboat.
