Nice Day For A Swim

Peering through the reeds at the edge of the swamp earlier this week, who should I see gliding by in the water but our old pal Mr. A!

Yes he was out taking advantage of the unseasonably warm temps we had here along the coast of South Carolina while much of the United States was suffering with a deep freeze.

After cruising over briefly to say hello, my alligator friend turned and glided away… no doubt on his way to finding a nice comfy spot to nap and soak up a little December sunshine.

    • He said don’t get me a stupid scarf again for Christmas this year.
      I know the pelicans won’t be chipping in on a gift for him, not after his behavior in the pond last Spring. 😯

  1. Can you actually tell this guy apart from others, or is he the only Mr A in the swamp? So nice of him to give you another chance to brag on your great weather. At least we finally made it into the 40s for the first time in weeks tonight, bringing some much needed and way overdue rain with the warmth.

    • The one I would prefer not to recognize me is the mom of the babies. I really think she remembers seeing me and is none too thrilled about it. I saw her back in the reeds behind her babies this morning but she never came out which was just as well. 🙂

    • Yes indeed I spent a lot of time on the youngsters and he must feel left out.
      I saw mom and a few babies this morning but they all stayed tucked back in the reeds mostly out of sight.
