The Belle Glade Saga Continues

Dr. Gallon, President of Palm Beach State College asked me
to come back to the college for a short while.
  How exciting was that. 

Of course I said yes. 

That was in July.
I am back...........

Nothing like Wellington to enjoy the beautiful sky and great weather.

This is the Pahokee marina on the 500,000 acre Lake Okeechobee.

In almost every canal there lurks the great Florida alligator.
Some can get as big as 13 feet long and weigh over600 pounds. 
At night you can see shining eyes eerily looking at you from the side of the road.

 In the olden days everyone would come by boat  to this trading store. 

 These are beautiful art pieces that are outside the prison in Belle Glade.

 Another great mosaic made by the children in Belle Glade. 

Stay tuned for the visit to Lion County Safari.

Your photographs capture the story of the interesting time you spent in south Florida. I'm sure glad that you are back though --- sister time is not just for weekends!
