Gators - The Girl With the Sun in Her Head
Luke finally saw some gators today. It was the last thing she needed to do before she heads back home to Norway in the next week or so. I will miss her! I wish she could stay forever. I think she enjoys the warm weather. It was 83 degrees today. :)

The gator in the below picture was about 6 feet long. He wasn't terribly big at all. It's incredibly difficult to get a decent picture of the Blythes with alligators because you can't get too close to them. They usually swim away because humans scare them.

Brian lured this guy to the bank by throwing little stones in front of him in the water. He wasn't afraid of us, which is not something you want to see with alligators (unless you are trying to get a picture of one with a Blythe).

He was about 10 feet away from us. They are faster than they look, and they can jump pretty high. Brian was kneeling down in front of me ready to throw a giant rock on his head in case he tried anything funny.

I wish I could get closer, but a 6 foot gator is big enough to maul me. No thank you!

Oh yeah, the gator is the blackish lump between the grass blades. There are other pictures in my Flickr, but I'm too lazy to link there.

Awww! I really love Luke. I feel the need for a thermal saran girl now. Maybe for my birthday next year I can commission one or attempt one of my own. I'd like to do one with an RBL primadolly, I think. :)

I am going to send Luke and Reid to Norway on Dec. 11th, which is the Monday after this Monday. I finish my exams this week on Thursday, and I want some extra time to finish some things I am sending along with them. I'll send you an email about it when I mail them! <333

Gah!! I'd be so scared if I was anywhere near a wild gator!! You guys are very brave! I'm so glad Blythe was safe and not mauled! Oh, and you guys too. ;)

Hehe. They aren't that bad. Gator attacks are pretty rare. When they do attack people, it's usually because they've been fed in the past or the people are doing something stupid. Some guy was just attacked this week, but he had done some drugs before jumping naked into the water. Haha, see what I mean about stupid humans? Gators are pretty easy to kill, too. A good smack over the head and they're done with.

I admit this one had me a bit worried because he wasn't afraid of us. I think he's probably been fed in the past. But we were as safe as possible, and it was all in the name of Blythe! :D

They are Luke's favorite animals! She wanted to see one up close (I think she actually would have liked to wrestle one), so her wish was my command. :)
