I have been living in Northeastern North Carolina for about nine years. I’ve heard of alligators living this far north, but had not yet seen one here. Today, as my husband,son and I journeyed with some friends over to Roanoke Island to go kayaking I finally got to see one here!
As much I enjoyed pulling over to the side of the road to snap a shot of this reptile, I am very thankful we didn’t actually come upon him while kayaking. I think it would have spoiled the peaceful mood of the morning.
Now, I just need to finally see a black bear that everyone says lives here too!
