I am lousy gator bait

I took the day off today to go diving with a friend of mine. We hit the Cooper of course, and I was the first in. I found all most all of the teeth in the photo below in this spot. Man, it was a gold mine. I really wish we could have dived more there. Why didn't we, you ask? Well, when I came up from my dive, my friend says "Dude, get in the boat... hurry up." I replied that I was swimming as fast as I could, and why? He was looking toward the bank and motioning for me to come around the boat. He had kindof a worried look on his face. So obviously, I sped my pace a little. ;-) When I was in the boat I asked him what the deal was and he pointed over to the bank at about an 8 to 10 foot alligator. His head was as long as my torso! He said he never got more than about 30 feet from me, but when I surfaced, it started swimming towards me. As I approached the boat, it turned away. That's why the next dive was somewhere else! Too bad, too, because that other spot was SWEET!
