I read about the St. Augustine Alligator Farm in a photography magazine. It’s an alligator farm, but wild marsh birds regularly make their nests in the “alligator swamp” each spring. The alligators keep their natural predators away while they raise their young. So Rich and I drove up to St. Augustine to take some pictures…and found we weren’t the only ones who made the trip!
There were some other birds at the zoo as well, much more colorful, but not as cute.
Rich was overjoyed to see all the turtles that were at the Alligator Farm. Maybe the drive was worth it. :)
It is an alligator farm, so maybe I should include one picture of an alligator.
