You gotta be tough to hang out at Gator Beach.
We prefer scales to sunscreen, live food to sushi, and nictitating membranes to swim goggles.
(from Latin nictare, to blink)
Sometimes Gator Beach gets a little crowded.
That's a good time to hit the water with your stick and catch some gnarly waves.
These babies and the juvie gator in the top pic were all sunbathing in the woods Sunday. It was one of those mornings where I was almost out of the woods without a single decent pic of anything more exciting than a TiTi tree, and then ...
... baby gators!
I realize I should be posting these on Pure Alligator (and I will eventually), but I just couldn't stand not to post them here first.
There's video too.
