NASSAU COUNTY, Fla. - A Fernandina Beach family woke up to find an uninvited guest using their pool Wednesday morning. 

A gator decided it wanted to take a dip. 

Florida wildlife officers and a Nassau County deputy got the reptile out safely. The Nassau County Sherriff's Office is reminding pool-goers to check before they leap! 

On a hot day like today, a swim doesn't sound like a bad idea!
