Viewing Florida's wildlife and kayaking the spring run July 31, 2015







We had the pleasure of paddling with a group of 4 from Russia this morning and the St Johns River didn't disappoint! It's always a treat to show off our part of Florida to people from far away lands. The Swamp Hibiscus and Rose Mallow are blooming along the river's edge and the Water Hickory's branches that are loaded with nuts are hanging low. We watched the Great and Little Blue Herons and Great Egrets fishing in the lilies and the Ospreys and Swallow-tailed Kites were flying over head, dipping down to the river for a quick drink. We got to see a few large Alligators today and in the clear waters of the spring run the Longnose Gar, Mullet, Catfish, Bream and Tilapia could easily be seen. We also spent some time observing 2 young Manatees that were playing around in the run. This was a fantastic day to be on the river. Time flies when you have a kayak paddle in your hands.

Exploring the cool spring fed Wekiva River July 2, 2015






It was a Heron kind of day on the Wekiva. Great Blues, Tri-colored, Little Blues and Green Herons were out as well as the Great Egrets, White Ibis, Anhingas, Limpkins and Ospreys diving for fish. The Turtles were sunning on the logs while the Spanish Moss was swaying in the breeze. We hugged the tree line and you can see the new Apple Snail Eggs on the Cattails. The Pink Mallow, Scarlet Hibiscus and yellow Spatterdock all throw a splash of color against the greens of Summer. It was a blue sky Florida day and a great one to be on the river.  

Kayaking Rock Springs Run and Emerald Cut June 3, 2015











Doug came down from PA on a business trip and looked us up for a nature fix. We took half a day to explore the Rock Springs Run and Emerald Cut area. The Otters were our big find of the day and there was lots of other stuff to see. The Great Blue Heron flew by overhead, White Ibis probing around, the Great Egret was stalking for lunch and we saw a pair of Pileated Woodpeckers. There were tons of Turtles and a few small Gators out sunning. The water is running crystal clear and cool which made for a nice dip. It's a very unique place to paddle and setting up for the corners of Emerald Cut makes for a fun day of yakking!

It's like paddling over the top of an aquarium! May 1, 2015






As we paddled by an Osprey dove down just inches from a Bald Eagle that was perched high in the Cypress Tree. On the other side of the river there were 2 medium size and big Gator basking in the sun. Up in the spring run we could see Garfish, Bream, Tilapia, Bass and Mullet in the crystal clear water. It's like paddling over the top of an aquarium. Off toward Snake Creek we caught a glimpse of a Swallow-tailed Kite as it drifted overhead, we could hear the hoots of the Barred Owl and there were several Red-shouldered Hawks about as well. Mother Nature runs a pretty good program and we just really appreciate her sharing her many jewels with all of us. Life is good!
