Very cool pictures... One question pic #3-7 has a gator or croc (unsure what they are called down there) in it I have seen other pictures also with them in.
I was wondering to you need to watch out when swiming or walking around away from the towns?? Thanks

Looks like you left someplace cold for someplace warm.
Thanks for the photo of the menu. Are the prices there about the average around PDC?

Second photograph is Lambert - the old terminal.

First is one of the bridges over the Mississippi, I would guess. Not sure which one, but I would guess the one I used to go over a lot, that dumps you out near Laclede's Landing and an on ramp to I-70 - but they have done so much construction just north of downtown there that I am unsure.
