The next day we left Miami and headed for the Loop road at Bg Cypress National preserve. This road goes through the heart of the swamp. We've seen all sorts of animal life on this roads, alligators, otters, snakes, and countless birds and fish. The gators were definitely a bit shy of the bike. In a car you can creep right by and they won't move. They ran away from the bike most of the time.

On the way through we stopped at a publix and got some snacks and the best cafe con leche I'v ever had. It was perfect!
