Flamingo is just about as far as you can drive into the Everglades and takes you right to the coast to see where the Everglades meet and mix with the sea.
On the drive down there were a disturbing number of extremely large crickets all over the road, we stopped so Eva could reluctantly get out the car and take some photos up close.
The reason for driving all the way to Flamingo was to go Kayaking. We spent 1 hour kayaking up an alligator infested river before we ran into torrential rain. So for the next hour we headed out to sea to escape the rain and see many jumping fish. Just as we were heading back to dock Eva shouted, Is that a shark? Thankfully not, it was a dolphin and it was amazing to see so close (Sadly no picture).
