Swamp Boats.

I took my first boat trip in the swamp in the late 1980's. A young boy rowed our small boat and helped us spot a gator in the water. We only saw one, and he was easy to miss. I was afraid a snake would crawl into the boat or a gator would get me. When that didn't happen, I took a boat out on my own and navigated the water by wooden arrows nailed to the trees.
