The swamps absolutely amaze me! There is this green goo (algae) all over the water that makes it a glorious color of green. Alligators live in it and when they come out they are covered with the green mess. There are many alligators here at Magnolia Gardens Swamp Walk but the odds of running across one near you are pretty slim. I love all the wild life as I walk through on the boardwalk. But I always wonder - who built the boardwalk?
