Remembering the days when Seagrove was alligator alley

Published: Friday, May 17, 2013 at 12:08 PM.

As we had dogs and children, I took the position that human life comes first. I killed one alligator and towed it uplake and left it in the bushes. We seldom saw any other alligators near our dock after I killed that one. We kept a lookout. We would see them around the lake as we fished from a boat.

My mother sold our cabin in the 1970s.

I have many photos around the lake, in the lake and on the beach. Some photos are of our fishing around the lake in the bulrushes sloughs. In those days, we were all alone.

The area has really changed.
