i think i might run into mr. ecko any moment...

'cause this place looks just like lost!!! the swamps we had been to thus far were kind of disappointing - lots and lots and lots of gators, but mostly just saw grass. the saw grass is super-sharp and kind of rattles in the wind, but we were looking for a swamp truly worthy of the name the glades.

this weekend we finally found it! it's only a half hour away, really near the ocean - in fact, it's connected to a lagoon, and it's full of manatees during the right season! anyway, this is the kind of swamp that has trees with roots that reach way way down into the water. most of the roots don't even touch the dirt! they just dangle down from the tree, kind of like straws that swish around. some trees look like cross-sections, with roots that go up a good 8 feet in the air before the trunk starts. some of the best climbing trees i've ever seen!! the whole place looks like the amazon. makes me want to put achiote in my hair and shrink a head. or something.

The sight is absolutely awesome, maybe next time we are there we can go to this place. How long of a trip is it? Do we have to row a lot? Keep finding new places for all of us to go!!!
