So we went to Myakka State Park last class and it was my first time there and probably my last since I won’t have a car here in Florida. I’ve never heard of this place and it was quite interesting seeing things I would never be able to see in cities. So far, I think the most interesting thing was being able to see crocodiles. I’ve only seen them in zoos. I did hear that there are quite a bit of crocodiles around Florida near swamps and lakes, however it’s only my second year here and I had never witnessed one. Talking about swamps, if some heard me around the place, I kept talking about minecraft each time we passed by one since the day before I was playing the game and was searching for a swamp to find slimes. Oh well, that doesn’t matter.
I loved the Myakka tower. I do like high places that I enjoyed walking up and looking down from above. Also walking across the bridge reminded me of this rope bridge I had to cross before. This bridge was just made of wooden blocks while the rope bridge was just all ropes.
One thing that was quite a shame was not being able to see other animals closer up, such as the pigs and the deers. I did witness deers, however they were only glimpse of them. It is basically my first time being with animals in the wild (as I’ve say earlier, I’m a city person that I don’t see wild animals on the streets or roads) and I really wanted to be able to see them up close. However, overall I had extreme fun experiencing something new.
If I have a chance to visit this place again (only if someone take me), I’d be glad to stay there longer enjoying my time.
