Miami Beach and the alligators.

Miami Beach has been lovely! We have visited the beach every day. Today we spent the whole day there and Henry just loves it! He puts his goggles and armbands on and goes in. I asked him last night what he wanted to do today and he said: the plan is mum,1, wake up, 2, put my armbands on, 3, float around in the water. Can’t argue with that plan!

Yesterday we had an alligator tour booked, in the Everglades. It was really good and again Henrys eyes just grew bigger and bigger. A man came and picked us up on a bus and it took about an hour to get there, we had a small tour around Miami South beach when we went around to collect people. We now know where the rich and famous lives. Then we came to the everglades and we boarded an airboat with the others and off we went. We saw 3 big alligator out in the water and a few babies. It was really nice to sit on the boat it felt like we were hovering. The boat ride lasted for about 20 minutes and after that there were a show and tell.

The show and tell was a man showing baby alligators and baby crocodiles and explaining the differences. He also showed a big mamma alligator and did a few tricks with her. Henry thought it was amazing. After the show, they had a baby alligator that you could hold and take a picture with. It cost a few dollars and the money went back into keeping the place and the animals safe. We took some pictures with it and Henry could touch it.
