Finally we left the state of Florida and entered the state of Alabama. We drove past a final Florida State Park (Big Lagoon State Park) and passed the border to Alabama at Orange Beach, which reminded us of Miami Beach, just smaller.

And there.. we saw them: Alligators.. everywhere.. They told us, that gators swim with a speed of 35... Continue Reading →
