Lake Alice


I'm risking my life here people.  When I was little, my dad took my sisters and I out to Lake Alice to see the alligators.  I guess my sisters and I may have gotten a little too close to the water so my dad warned us that alligators are quick to snatch up little kids and eat them...scarred for life.  So when my husband kept telling me that he couldn't see my face to take a picture, ummm that's because someone has to keep an eye out for any alligators.  Jeesh.  As soon as I heard a little kid scream, "there's one!" I bolted.

  5. Love the polka dots and bubble necklace. It only took one canoeing trip and seeing one baby alligator in the wild to make me permanently scan any body of water for gators when outdoors :)
