Rock A Bye Baby

Our resident alligator near the nature trail just had babies. There are at least 30 and maybe 50 or more tiny striped babies and they are so much fun to watch. Mama delivers every summer and it is quite an attraction here. The babies are about a week old and swimming and sunning under Mom's watchful eye. In the top photo they are swimming next to Mom's head. Photo #2 she is watching a pile of babies in front of her. In photo #3 one little guy is already using his teeth on a plant and the bottom photo Mom has turned sideways to show the spectators her length. She kept a watchful eye on the humans on the edge of the lagoon.

California Girls

Just another day at the beach. Jeff and I went "down the shore" yesterday and spent two hours at Folly Field Beach. The water was warm and the waves were just right. It is so good to be home and we are enjoying reconnecting with friends.
