A CRAWL OF A DIFFERENT SORT!

While walking and enjoying the sunrise, Chelsea spotted the alligator.
  At first we were not sure whether it was alive or not.
Upon closer inspection, we could see that he/she was breathing and the eyes were open.


The alligator was about 3 ft. in length and as you can see, let us get quite close to it.  I was ready to jump in a flash if need be.


Later we came upon what appeared from a distance to be a stranded very young turtle.  When we got closer we discovered it was a Diamond Back.
Bill found this dead female Blue Crab.
