Gators and native Americans

e left the villa around 9.30 and started our journey back south towards Miami to stay in Florida City for a couple of nights to round off our holiday. Having had the huge storm first thing the sky looked as if we could get more but we were lucky and didn't have any on the journey, it started just as we got back to our room after supper.

The route took us right along the Tamiami Trail which crosses the southern tip of Florida, mainly a long straight road through the edge of the Everglades. We saw lots of bird life and also a whole group of alligators in the canal by the visitor centre.

The Miccosukee Indians have villages all along the trail and several shops and restaurants also lots of airboat rides, many of which were closed as this is now low season.

Food for thought
