    I loved “following” you on your tour – great pictures and glad you saw a gator!

      Thanks! The swamp tour was fun– it was exciting imagining a giant gator popping out at us 🙂

    Great photos and fun, Leslie! I’m terrified of alligators 🙂

      Thanks Charu! If you are gator phobic, I would definitely recommend taking a traditional swamp tour in a motor boat. There isn’t much separating you from wildlife in a kayak 🙂

    Beautiful scenery through the bayous. Great that you saw a gator. Did you see many birds?

      We did see different types of birds, but as I’m not a birder I wasn’t very focused on which types 😉 The scenery was amazing!

    Another great adventure I’d like to do – even if it doesn’t sound as hard core as canyoneering. Your photos are great too.

      Thanks! Kayaking was a fun way to explore alligator-infested swamps 🙂 Definitely not as hardcore as canyoneering though– it was a relative cakewalk!

    I am so surprised to find that you came to Lake Martin! That is close to where I live. I send a lot of people there as it is one of the better swamps in the area in my opinion. Glad you got to see an alligator even though it may have been a big one. Most of the time they are pretty non-confrontational, except for the time that one ate my t-shirt, but that’s another story. Anyway, glad you came to Louisiana!

      Wow– you are a local son! I’d love to hear how a gator ate your shirt. I’m assuming you weren’t wearing it at the time?! We loved Cajun Country and I can’t wait to go back 🙂

    I like setting a goal: “I can get to the lighthouse and
    back in a couple of hours. A kayak and paddle, life jacket, helmet and
    spray skirt are the advise fundamentals. Good luck, and always remember to respect the
    land and practice cache-in, trash-out. The sponging village of Tarpon Springs is a bit of paddle, doable.
