Grassy Waters is the local place where we take people from out of town. I like for our guests to see the beauty of wild Florida (not the beach!). We brought Roberto’s family here on the afternoon of their visit. Grassy Waters is especially beautiful in the winter. No one was there but the warden, some huge herons and a 12 foot (at least) alligator, and us. The warden said that the gator was a male but she couldn’t say how she knew that. Maybe because he was so big?
This is what we call Florida Christmas Holly, It that appears this time of year.
