We were supposed to go on a special trip at Grand Turks to visit an uninhabited island and see/touch stingrays in the wild. Since we were no longer going to Grand Turk, we decided to use our refund for a different side trip. We eventually settled on an airboat ride into the Florida swamps to look for alligators. Mackenzie was a bit ..... dubious??.... at first, but as you'll see from the pictures, she had a GREAT time!

|Kenzie's ready for another adventure!|
|Looking at one of the other airboats and the dock|
|Ready to GOOOOOO!!!|
|Look closely -- it's our first alligator sighting of the afternoon!|
|And here it comes.....|
|Captain Kenzie, ready to to go hunt down those varmints!|
|After the airboat ride, we were given a demonstration by a local animal rescue group that specializes in wildlife/exotic creatures. Here are the "critters" they brought for show and tell......|
|So guess which one Mackenzie had to hold afterwords?????|
|Back at the ship, leaving Port Canaveral, and enjoying the warm breezes.|

|Another look back at the beach|
|And last, but not least, our towel critter for the night? Is it a bulldog? Not quite sure......|
Tomorrow...... arriving in Nassau, the Bahamas!!
