Sharing Dinner With a Local

Guest Post by Nancy Dobias

Going to Myakka River State Park is always a hit and miss as to what you might see.  You might see gorgeous Prairie Irises which are toxic to humans and could cause a severe skin rash upon contact or you might see a wonderful meadow anchored by a gnarled old tree practicing some remarkable gymnastic moves among the palms.

You'll surely see some alligators and no doubt a few may even go out of their way to greet you.

Should any of the locals happen to cross your path, please be courteous and give these folks the right-of-way. t won't take them long to cross the road, return to their habitat and once more be on their way to greener pastures. Who knows...if you're real nice, they might even share a dinner with you.
