This shallow pond is bordered by woods along one section and a busy street and grassy area along the rest of it. I walked a short traill leading up to the pond and then stayed mainly on the boardwalk that crosses the pond. I saw 3 alligators, all about 4 feet long, and 1 Common Cooter, about 1 foot long. Frogs were abundant (possibly Southern Chorus Frogs?), calling all around. Sunset occurred about 6:38 p.m.
