The powers that be re-opened the wildlife drive near me, where there are scads of alligators and birds to view safely from one's car. It had been closed because of the pandemic. Apparently the alligators are more plentiful than ever, and lie in the road now. IN the road, not alongside it like the pictures below. After a couple of months with no cars, they think they own the place.
We usually go for a bike ride (or a walk) every morning. Today my knee is "hinky" and I'm going to take a day off to rest it. My husband took this as the opportunity to bike on the aforesaid drive, which I am usually reluctant to do. He's there now. I KNOW he's going to ride his bike around the lounging gators.
I told him to be safe. That's code for "don't underestimate the alligators." He laughed and said he would. Sheesh.
11:53 am He's back, He was careful. Yay.
