The Everglades

During our week in Miami we also visited the Everglades. We were actually really looking forward to getting out of the city and enjoyed the day in the wilderness. We decided against an air boat ride and chose instead the more environmental friendly kajak to paddle through the mangrove forests.
We saw it all: alligator, crocodile, snakes and birds.

The landscape is beautiful down there and on the way to the Everglades we passed the “fruit and vegetable basket” of Florida. Every few kilometers a fruit stand offeres freshly squeezed juices and fruit. We stopped at “Robert is here” a family owned fruit stand that sells home made honey and jam and lots of tropical fruits. We had a milkshake with strawberries and key lime.
