We are not sure exactly when or where the bite happened, but as there are no pavements around the everglades hostel you end up wading knee deep through swampy areas in order to get to the local Walmart to buy guns and bicycles.
Something chewed on Sharons leg, and the following day during a bike ride through the everglades, the small bite swelled up about the size of a golf ball, then another started to grow next to it.
It looked horrible, hopefully we can attach the picture.
We went to the hospital and got fast tracked after meeting a lady that worked there who was from Macclesfield
We drove to Clearwater and stayed at a hostel 2 blocks from the beach. The beach was very nice with white sand, we done some canoeing in the bay and hired some bikes, although it hammered it down on the day we hired the bikes. Dolphins were swimming around in the sea, but apart from more sunbathing not too much happened. There was some old hobo we kept passing, he must of thought I was too thin as by the third day he offered me an apple and some potato chips. He didn't have any teeth.
A couple we met in the everglades hostel also turned up in the Clearwater hostel, they were moving to Perth and we will look them up when we get over there.
We arranged a driveaway to go from Fort Lauderdale over to LA, this meant going back on ourselves, but we were going to Orlando so we hired a car to take us to Disney then back to Miami.
