Gators

A swamp tour wouldn't be complete without seeing alligators.

This one swam up to the tour boat while we were still docked.
Jesse:  "It's big!"
It obviously had no fear of humans.

I think the tour guide called this one snag.  I could totally be wrong about that.  The white on the end of its nose (if that is the right thing to call it) is an egg tooth that never fell off.
 



 
Want to touch it Jesse?

This baby alligator was longer than Jesse is tall.  It isn't any wonder he was hesitant and careful.  I'd be the same way with one as long as I am tall.


Back Story

Christy, Jesse, and I took the Amtrak Crescent from the train depot in Anniston AL to New Orleans for a week of adventure and photography. This train station is a classical revival depot and is listed in the National Registry of Historical Places. Jesse loves to ride the train. Heck, we all love to ride the train. We left August 8, 2013 and returned August 14th. Unfortunately Jeremy couldn’t go this time. He had to work.
Christy’s father was kind enough to drive us to the train station and pick us up so we wouldn’t have to leave a vehicle parked there for a week.
We stayed at our usual place, the historic 905 Royal Hotel in the French Quarter. The 905 Royal was built in the late 1890’s.

See what else I’m doing.
