Headin’ Toward Miami

We left the campground around 11:00am on Saturday with a goal of reaching the Miccosukee Indian Resort and Gaming Casino near Miami.  This will be the point where we will turn south toward the Keys.

As we were driving out of the campground, Patsy spotted a couple of peacocks in a pen, and she got a picture of the feathers………….

We noticed that as we headed west, the scenery was different…. more growth and some moss!  We also saw a lot of motorcycles on the road…. probably because it was Saturday.  You can also see Patsy’s starfish drying out on the dash……

We got to the casino and parked the motorhomes.  We then headed out in our car to check out some of the airboat ride vendors that we passed, and the Everglades “Shark Valley” Visitor Center.  At the visitor center, we walked along a tour road, and saw more alligators……. some sunning on ‘our’ side of the water!!

We are going to wait until we are further down into the Keys before we take an airboat ride.
