    Some images of the Everglades around Kissimee in Florida. I used the video a lot on the boat ride but need to join the clips up and then post to Vimeo as soon as that is done I will put it up on here.

    I can't remember what they called this flower or plant but it did not sound like it looked. To me it looked like a water Hyacinth but I think he called it a violet something or other??. It grew in clumps around the islands of vegetation

    Some more scenery up the water , we never ventured into the really open water only when we left the station and went back, when the boat captain gave us an exhilerating ride which took our breathe away especially when we neared the vegetation he turned from it at the very last minute and we aquaplaned round and into to it. Of course being an air boat and flat bottomed we just glided over everything! I was expecting to have a crash.:O The second time I was wised up and just enjoyed the whole boat ride waiting for another zoom into the reeds but after that he didn't do it again. :)

    This was the first Alligator we saw, it was an adult but not a very big one. They never moved while we were watching it and the boat was right along side it with everyone talking and pointing to it, it just stared at everyone dead still. This was, according to the guide a female and one can tell by the eyes. They all looked the same to me !
