In August of this year (2018), my wife and I uprooted from Long Island, New York and moved to Naples, FL. One of the many attractions of this area is that it is a short ride into another world – the Everglades. The Everglades are America’s only sub-tropical region and is home to countless species of wildlife. I have just started exploring my new “backyard” but, man, am I enjoying it so far! If you look closely, you can see me and my airboat companions in the alligator’s eye. The ultimate selfie? I think so!
