Remember the duck scene from The Notebook? The ducks were brought in just for that scene. How I wish Ryan Gosling would row me around the swamp.... sigh!
There's an alligator swimming by, off to the left. The swamp has 8 miles of walking trails. Jason stepped off the trail to get a closer look at the water and nearly stepped on this alligator. A baby alligator crossed our path later that day, and a snake as well.
All in all, this was a great day. It was $18 for a day pass, and $36 for a year pass, so we got the year pass. We plan to return often.
