Everglades Tour by Van, foot, Swamp Buggy & Airboat.
Barbara and I took a tour of the Everglades.  It included lunch and touring by van, a short easy hike, swamp buggy and airboat.  A very nice way to see a new area and we saw areas that we probably would not have seen on our own.  The group was a family of three and Barbara and me.

'Ding' Darling NWR
Barbara and I spent the day on Sanibel Island.  We drove the Wildlife Drive three times and then headed to Bowman's Beach to watch the sunset.  I broke the day up into 4 pages to make it easier and try to not bore you too much.  I had some problems with the order of the photos.  I thought I had it right but when I thought I was done I noticed some issues.  I left them.  If the pictures look out of sequence, they are. Sorry.

                                                                              Shark Valley, Everglade, FL
             
My sister, Jane, came for a visit.  We drove to Shark Valley and did the
               
tram tour.  They do the driving and provide many bits of info about the
                       
Everglades.  There is an observation tower and many Alligators.
