Paradise Regained on Kiawah Island, Charleston
Alligators are popular residents of this island and I saw several on my bike ride. One was sleeping on the lawn of a house, another, lying on the bank was keeping a watchful eye on me as I crept closer to take a photograph. As I was standing by a lake composing a photograph my attention was drawn to an alligator just below the surface of the water three feet in front of me. It was so large I took one hasty photograph and fled back to my bike.
