Hi Sallie...

Great post, my friend...thank you so much for sharing it with us for Sunday Favorites this week! I had to really look close at the second photo...I thought it was an alligator! Hehe! I spoke to my mom earlier this week...she lives in south Texas. They recently had to call Fish and Game because a huge alligator was causing problems in their lake (Lake Corpus Christi). When the game warden got there...he took photos. That alligator measured 28' long...can you believe that? And...even more strange was...this alligator had a full grown buck in it's mouth that he had killed! I would have never believed it unless I had seen the photos with my own eyes! So scary!

Thanks again for sharing a couple of photos of your trips with us for Sunday Favorites!

Warmest wishes,
Chari @Happy To Design


Great post! Thanks for sharing these amazing photos. What does one do if they come across an alligator like that? Yikes!


haha... pretty funny!


Eeek, alligators!

Hi JOe -- Don't stay away from Florida or Texas because of the Alligators. You kind of have to look for them. I think you could play golf most of the time without competing with them ;>

I think I will take the Oregon canal. Sometimes when I have golfed in the south there are signs warning of alligators

Hugs and blessings,


Shayla, they are usually pretty sleepy and don't pay us any attention -- except for one time in Texas whewn we tried to take pictures of a mother one with babies and she got mad. There are some pictures of that on this post:

You can click on Texas over on our categories list and I think it's the second post or so down from the top of that category. It's called "Island Time Starts Here. You can click on the small pictures to see the mad mother.



Wow, that's cool that you got so close to an alligator. I can't imagine what it would be like to live in the same area as a big lizard like that... I'm from Canada; we're terrified of gators because most of use have never seen one outside of TV and the zoo.

Thanks everybody. I was hoping that others would think the comparison was funny. Glad you did and that you let us know!


You had me going on that one! It wasn't until I put my glasses on that I realized the bottom one was a tree gator.


I think I would prefer boating without the alligator in he top photo, I prefer the faux alligator.


alligators are a bit like bears... as in unnerving. I love that you saw a gator in the log.


Great shots. A quick glance at that log could really give you a fright for a moment!

Cool alligator shot.


LOL, that a good one. They do look similiar. Thanks for sharing your watery Wednesday.


Haha... I think I'd prefer to have a run in with your Oregon alligator! :)
