This morning myself and two co-workers went to a local park. It is only about a 1/4 of a mile down from the hotel. We walked and it was such a nice park. And it was so good to get out of the "city" and into some country.
In the park, they have paddle boats. We decided it would be fun to go out on one so off we went.
We saw several turtles. This one was really posing for me.
But then, we came across this!
Are you kiddin' me?! There is an alligator in the paddle boat area. At this time, I'm thinkin' there's not but about 6 inches of boat between me and the water. This was the closest I've ever been to an alligator. And I can tell ya, don't really want to get close again.
We asked the park people about it. They said as long as you didn't bother it, it wouldn't bother you. Really! That's all you can tell me. We were really surprised they don't move it due to liability issues. Guess it's no big deal to SC peeps.
