Valentine’s Day Dinner in Russell Pass – Everglades National Park

Not many women get an opportunity to enjoy a romantic Valentine’s Day dinner with their sweetie in a remote setting like our anchorage tonight in Russell Pass – Everglades National Park. It might not appeal to some but I have to tell you I’m lovin’ it. We’re anchored tonight with two sailboats, one in front of us and one behind us. Showers outside this afternoon and an early dinner on the back deck of Kismet (early because we want to eat outside before the bugs come to eat us).

We didn’t see any alligators or turtles during our stay, it’s been cold recently so we think the alligators are still buried in mud keeping warm, but we did see these white pelicans (below) on our way into the pass. It was too shallow to get closer for a better photo. We don’t often see large groups of white pelicans like this in one spot, so it was a special treat for us today.
