(Ogden Nash-I think)
July 20, 2009
I went to panther country today. I did not know that they had panthers in the Everglades but I guess they do. There were panther crossing signs every where but I did not see any. I did ride across the Everglades on the Tamiami scenic byway. I believe that they misspelled it because it should be To Miami scenic byway which is where it ends up.
It was a great ride through some very scenic swamps if there is such a thing. The weather cooperated and did not get so hot today. It did rain on me once but there is nothing new about that. I stopped and had a talk with a guy sitting on the side of the road holding an alligator. I think he wanted money to have ones picture taken with the reptile but he would have had to pay me instead. I don’t like cold blooded animals.
He is a lot bigger than he looks
I found a nice little restaurant on a river in Everglade City to have more boiled shrimp. Nice. They had a bigger alligator but it was stuffed and I liked that a lot better.
