Watery Wednesday......

Here are a couple more photos from Drayton Hall, South Carolina.

The pond was built specifically so that it would reflect the house.



By the pond was sitting this fella, it was a baby as it was only 2 or 3 feet long. Dh was yelling at me not to get too close, he's such a baby!!!! At least I saw this gator, which was more than I can say about the photo I took last week!!

What pretty shots. Love the gator - I'd love to see one up close, but they just don't have them in Ohio (and seeing them in the zoo doesn't count):(

Rudee said...

Love your pictures today. The home is really beautiful.

Baby or not that little guy has quite a bite. What a great photo as is the one of that beautiful old house. Great photos Gill.

Good grief! Was it a pet?

If it was I think it's just one upmanship! Certainly beats saying "there are fairies at the bottom of our garden."

Love that first photo, breath-taking. Gill, your decription of your dh regarding the 2nd photo, reminded me of my hubs! Yes, this week, I can see the 'gator.

Okay, I can't imagine walking out of my front door down to my own little pond and having to look out for alligators! Great shot!

now thats a scary shot, I'd be running as fast as one 61 yr old woman with a bad knee can run!

Aligators have been seen as far north as Cheraw SC, which is only a few miles from the NC line...love that you were able to get this shot!

Pretty pictures...but, yeah...I'm a chicken...I'd be runnin' from that 'gator!

Cathy said...

That's awesome about the reflection. I would have been so busy taking pictures I would have tripped over the darn thing. Good thing for the warning..lol. That's G's job at the dirtbike races is to scout out good spots to take photos and to pull me out of the way if they wreck and are coming my way.

Hi Gill, great pics ! Those alligators are mean little devils.

Mary said...

How perfect to build a pond just for a reflection! Nice gator shot!

Twisted Fencepost said...

Oh, so not fair!!!
I ran out of time before I got to go to Drayton Hall!
Oh well, atleast one of us got to visit.
And I get to see all your pictures!
Thanks for sharing!!

Lovely reflection of the house. But, what a great capture of the alligator. I could swear when I enlarged it (recommended) that he was smiling. He's almost cute. :)

Niki :-) said...

Scary! I've never seen a real one, only in the zoo. grrrr

Jess said...

Well baby or not... I wouldn't dare get close! I love my arms and legs too much! lol

Great shots... and good posts today.

Have a good end of the week
Love, Jess

Lovely photos! I like the gators. In Nebraska you can only see them at the zoo!

I love it when people post historic photos. It is so interesting to see places I might never get the chance to go. Thanks for sharing.

Strawberry Jam Anne said...

Hi Gill - lovely shot of the house reflected in the water. I think I'll just keep to frogs and newts in my pond though. Like Carletta I think the 'gator was smiling for the camera. What a poser! Or do you suppose he was thinking about a snack!

I tried to leave this comment on Wednesday. Must have forgotten to press the publish button!

Devotion to duty will get the better of you one day Gill. But in the mean time we get to see your brilliant photos.
