Everglades Adventure

  My painting buddy's husband, Phil, persuaded us to join him on a walking tour in the everglades this past week.  Eileen and I thought our guides were joking when they told us we would be waist deep in the swamp. Fortunately, we didn't encounter any pythons or alligators, and had brought along a change of clothes.  The tour winds through the swamp behind the Clyde Butcher photography gallery on Tamiami Trail near Ochopee.  I took along my pocket camera and snapped some shots.  After emerging from the swamp, we noticed some alligators sunning themselves near a pond. Yikes!  Later, we headed to Goodland near Naples to scout a painting location.  I was attracted to a lovely flowering bush in front of a run-down home with a lot of old Florida charm.  Another memorable adventure along the painting trail.
