Last Saturday at Ocala Natural Forest in Florida, as reported by WPTV Palm Beach:


Richard Jones told WFTV in Orlando that he and his family were walking along the Oklawaha River watching alligators when his son walked through palm fronds to get a good picture. Jones told WFTV that his son must have startled the raccoon, which he said then stumbled toward the water and hopped on top of the gator that was near the water’s edge.


They only know how to take off.

Hang on.

Student pilots (and a pilot mother top) on Kildare Street, Dublin this afternoon. Eighty students (paying up to €80,000) were left stranded in Florida after their training was suspended.

Their course was run by the Enterprise Ireland-backed Pilot Training Centre in Waterford and accredited by the Irish Aviation Authority.

‘Boom and bust residential development has drastically affected parts of southwest Florida for decades now, and I spent some time (with the help of Google Earth), looking around the area’.

Too remote? Fancy something a little closer to home?
