More Alligators Seen Because of Flooding Suwanee River

Locally, the Suwanee River reached flood stage and because of it the water, which is normally crystal clear is now dark and muddy although it is beginning to clear up.

We went to the Manatee State Park yesterday (January 6, 2019) and saw both manatees and a small alligator sunning itself on a picnic table that just showed the top of the table

It was amazing how high the water reached. Of course, the board walks and swimming was restricted. Paddle boats and canoes were still available.
