We left Everglades City and headed north to Crystal River, but not before spending a day on the river at Alva searching for fossils.

Our B&B in Everglades city in what used to be the Bank, the safe was still present...










The search was in the bank and in the water...




There are alligators in this river too, we didn't see any, but one bit a child's arm off a few weeks later - though I expect it wasn't on a main channel like this...




Miche finds a rarity; a fossilised Barracuda tooth...










Tod...




Just some of the fossilised teeth we'd found... Shark, Barracuda, Stingray & Porcupine Fish...




The whole find...




Miche & Tod...







After a long day's searching, a welcome homely dinner at a local diner in Alva...
