I am in Key Largo. I have seen more life, more wild, happening-all-around-me LIFE, in the last few days than I have in the last 10 years. I have the Atlantic Ocean to one side of me and the Gulf of Mexico to the other. Every day, I wake up and am in disbelief that I'm even here. Today, I was informed that there is an 8-foot saltwater crocodile hanging out very near where I've been going to swim, alone, for the last couple of days. Right after that, I watched a snake chase down and eat a lizard. I've seen pelicans and tarpon, osprey, horseshoe crabs and blue crabs, needlefish, fish I can't name, starfish, anemones, and yesterday, two manatees swimming together right inside the buoy line, RIGHT THERE, close enough that I could have swum out and touched them, if I'd had the inclination to do so.

I'm feeling very grateful for my life today.

Thanks! Do you mind if I ask how you happened across it? :-)
