January 4, 2012 Everglades National Park   Leave a comment

We thought we’d do a quick stop at Everglades National Park visitor center and then possibly drive by Biscayne National Park leaving us plenty of time to check into the ‘meeting’ hotel giving us plenty of time to relax before meeting activities started.  Really, how interesting could a dirty swamp be? WRONG!

Everglades National Park, must stop, must see and must explore!!! Everglades National Park, skip lunch at Flamingo.  We decided to drive to the end of the glades and each lunch as suggested by one of the staff at the visitors center.  The food was really good but it took over 2 hours to get hamburgers – one cook working out of a temporary kitchen (truck) and a menu with way too many choices.  Great concept just too many choices and many many angry customers.  In the mean time, I enjoyed people watching and wildlife observing.
