Paddling the Dora Canal November 30, 2016





Glenn and Laura joined me on the early morning Dora Canal tour and we were met by the Fall season. The Red Maple leaves were raining down on us as we paddled downstream. The birds are starting to build their nests and don their breeding plumage. Three Great Blue Herons were striking a pose for their mates and the Great Egrets and Anhingas are sitting on nests high in the tops of the Cypress Trees. The Kingfishers and Pied-billed Grebes are now down for the Winter. The old Elfin River is truly an enchanted place to paddle.

Our day kayaking the mighty St Johns River








Iain and Linda brought their cousins from the UK to paddle the St Johns River with us this morning. One celebrating her birthday was the Princess of the day! A flock of Wild Turkeys flew across the river one at a time coming very close to us. In the springs a large Manatee was spotted resting on the bottom. Long-nosed Gar, a living fossil, one of the North America’s oldest were just under our kayaks and we could see them through the clear waters of the spring run. A few Gators were sunning in the Water Lettuce along with several Turtles. In the swamps there were 2 Pileated Woodpeckers playing hide and seek with each other while the White Ibis, Anhingas, Little and Great Blue Herons, Green Herons and Great Egrets all came out to greet us as well. It was a great day to be on the river and a good time was had by all!

Paddling the beautifully flooded Wekiva River October 2016











Here from Germany Marcel and Robin joined us for some Florida fun as overcast skies met us on the Wekiva River this morning. The river is at flood stage from Hurricane Matthew but it’s a welcome sight. The White Ibis looking for grubs to eat appreciate the high waters. There were several other bird species foraging for food as well. We caught a glimpse of some Wild Turkeys, Red-shouldered Hawks, Anhingas, Great Egrets, Tri-colored, Little Blue and Great Blue Herons to name a few. The Turtles were trying to cop some sun and there are a few trees that have toppled over. We dragged our kayaks over one large fallen Red Bay Tree and that just added to our adventure!

Birding in Sanford with a twist!








Down from VA for a little bird watching Dorothy paddled the Wekiva with us. It’s a great place to do some wildlife viewing and they were all out today! From Pileated Woodpeckers to Sandhill Cranes, Great Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Little Blues in the white and adult blue phase to Green Herons, Wood Ducks, Moorhens, Ospreys, Red-shouldered Hawks, Wild Turkeys, Tri-colored Herons, Anhingas and even a Limpkin just to name a few. The Turtles were sunning on their favorite logs and we spotted a few small Alligators mingling in the Duckweed. There is always something to see on the wild and scenic Wekiva River.
