In Search of Gators

My dad, step-mom, and step-brother came to town a few weeks ago in search of gators. It seems everyone I know is obsessed with the show Swamp People. And who wouldn't be with cajuns, gators, and guns? We couldn't resist and old fashioned steamboat ride on Caddo to see if we could find a few swamp critters ourselves.

Archer was captivated by our boat and others passing by. He was oblivious to the captain's story telling and history lesson. But he enjoyed himself no less.

Savannah asked a million questions as usual (which if she had been listening to the captain instead of talking she would have heard the answer:) and was intrigued by the moss hanging from the cypress trees. She even got a chance to drive the steamboat for a bit.

We were lucky enough to be there when the lily pads bloomed and the smell was intoxicating. We didn't spot any alligators but I think we will try one of his Full Moon minnight rides and see what happens.
