The Jungle Next Door


I took this photograph less than a mile from my front door, having discovered the local park was more than just a swing set and fishing dock. It looks so peaceful, but having taken the family-friendly pontoon cruise down the North Fork of the St. Lucie River, I can attest that there are a boatload of alligators, snakes, and other poisonous critters in and around these waters.

The ocean is hardly any safer. About two months ago, a helicopter pilot took a photo of hundreds of sharks twenty yards off the shore in Martin County. So far, the pool is my best bet.
