There are alligators in the Everglades!
After several hours in the Everglades we headed north to our new hotel on Casey Key. We dodged rain drops for maybe 17 seconds as we exited the glades, and continued on in dry but cloudy weather. We got to our hotel in time for a walk on the beach while it was daylight (our motel is on the beach, poor us), then off to dinner. There is a tiki bar in our courtyard, but I am not sure it actually is used.
