Gators

While in Florida last week we were trying to find things to keep us occupied.  We drove down to the Visitors Center and picked up brochures for all the Tourist type stuff.  One that stood out was for the Alligator Alley

The cost was $10 per person plus $2.50 for a souvenir cup filled with gator snacks. Snacks for the gators not us.   When we first walked in, we got to see some smaller alligators and got lucky to hold one of them.  When then continued to walk to where the big alligators were. We were probably within feet of the Alligators.  Of course, there was a fence between us and the alligators.   

Bad part about the entire tour is that we missed the feeding frenzy.  We were told to sit in a certain area to find that they fed the gators at another location. 

The park is nice for those that have never been close to an alligator, but it could use some improvement.  Especially with all the land they own.  They could have built a few special areas to get a better look at the larger gators.  They could also alternate feeding from the areas to be able to feed the gators more frequently.
