I'd heard stories about Loop Rd. and the Gator Hook bar since moving to Miami in 1979. Yesterday I asked my wife if she would like to take a ride with me to see a place I've always wanted to see.

It was beautiful, water crystal clear, air plants everywhere. Went by Lucky's house, and soon realized the bar was gone. Wanted to stop in for a beer in the worst way. The ride was amazing though as we did see a bobcat and two otter along Loop Road.

As we were leaving we stopped in the Miccosukee Restaurant for some delicious gator tail and frog legs, fry bread, and hush puppies. All in all a terrific day. Wonderful memories, and I did have that beer with dinner.
