We had a great time with Bill and Frances when we took the airboat ride into the Everglades.
Frances held a baby alligator. Of course his mouth was closed with a rubber band but it was a real alligator and it felt a little like holding a large snake! She was a good sport about it all.

This is a big tourist attraction but if you have never experienced the Everglades, this is a good way to do it. The airboat ride is fun and you see a lot of the wildlife in the area.

This young gator was only a few weeks old and he was surprisingly heavy.
