A canal borders the Tamiami Trail for much of the way, and I spotted alligators, turtles and birds along the way. We stopped at the visitor center at Big Cypress and walked along the nearby boardwalk. I’ve never seen so many alligators in one area at one time. There must have been at least a dozen, and they were so close to us. Amazing!

We made it to the west coast of Florida, where we settled into a campground in Bonita Springs. We plan to take a day to decompress, finish a few chores and look at places we might want to visit in the area.
We discovered that the campground is very kitty-friendly. Several RV owners have cats, and a lady near us hands out treats to both dogs and cats. But, best of all, our neighbors have two cats that walk on a leash. It turns out that Kitty is not the only cat who gets her exercise that way!
