Team Amirault's Taj II touring America & Canada Blog

A small luxury resort in Everglades City with great RV sites – A Class only and 28 ft minimum.  Lots of large, beautiful motor coaches here – Tiffins, Prevosts and a few Entegras!  We had a site along the river – there are 61 total sites. On the river so you get the noise from the Airboats across the way who do tours of the mangroves in the Everglades.  We took an hour tour and it was terrific – exciting, interesting and informative.  We did also took a narrated tram tour in the Everglades National Park as well as a drive along the Loop Road in the Big Cypress National Preserve.  We saw many alligators, herons, egrets, birds and beautiful plants as well as palm, cypress, and other trees.  This area is beautiful beyond words.  We will definitely return next year.  The heavy amount of rain and runoff from the big “Lake O” has affected the amount of birds in the park – normally there are thousands feeding during the winter.  However, the water is too deep – there are not as many as are expected in what is normally the dry season.  We hope next year is more typical.

The River of Grass – the name given to The Everglades – by earlier tribes and used by the woman who lead the effort to save them – is unique, fascinating, teaming with life and light.  The weather during the day changes how you see what is essentially a river,  – (120 miles lone by 60 miles wide) and illustrates its beauty differently minute by minute. Clouds reflected in the pools of water offer spectacular images complemented by soaring birds, languishing alligators and sweet wildflowers.  I will post many of the hundreds of photos we took during our two weeks here soon.  Visit this place, love and respect it – it is the only place like it in the world!
