Went on a early morning, self-guided rowboat tour through the inky-black/caramel colored still waters of Cypress Gardens. The sun backlit the hanging, hovering Spanish moss, warmed the feathers of huge buzzards resting in tall trees, opened the petals of lilies and bounced off the trunks of ancient-looking, gnarly cypress, all reflecting their beauty on the water's calm surface. The butterfly and "swampatorium" (think: gator's, and other swamp-dwelling beings)were great; the bird exhibit was unimpressive. The Gardens host weddings, small conferences, and, of course, us tourists and locals.
