A local icon, old Florida cypress swamp. Blink your eyes and you are in Seminole Indian country. Big trees, lots of birds. The Great Blue, Little Blue, Tri-colored & Night Herons, Great Egret, Osprey, Anhinga and Cormorants all nest in these beautiful tall trees. The sounds of the rookery let us know that Spring has sprung. A great tour for the early riser it's a real nice 2-3 hour getaway from it all!

A great morning spent kayaking near Tavares








The Anhinga was the bird of the day on the Dora Canal this morning. We must have seen 2 dozen of them. The Great Blue, Little Blue, Tri-colored Herons, Snowy Egrets and Great Egrets all made a showing and the bright yellow Prothonotary Warbler was out and about. The Button Bush is in full bloom and there are tons of Apple Snail Eggs being laid. That and the Eel Grass growing on the river’s edge are both signs of a healthy waterway. We could hear a pair of Limpkins sounding off from their new nesting site and we got to have the canal all to ourselves. It was a great morning to be playing outside!  

Another Great Paddling Day on the St Johns River





















It was near perfect on the St Johns River today. A nice cool front passed through and the animals were out feeding. There was a young White Ibis sitting in a tree overhead and a young Great Blue Heron out for its first fishing trip. The Ospreys were all about and the clear spring run was full of fish; Longnose Gar, schools of Tilapia, Mullet, Catfish, Bream and giant Grass Carp. We had a few Manatee sightings and one close encounter. A Manatee came over and “nosed” one of the kayaks - cool stuff! The Turtles were out sunning, we got to see a few Gator backs, the sky was clear blue, the Air Plant is in full bloom and it was a great day to be celebrating life!

Kayaking the Dora Canal














Today was a beautiful day to be on the Dora Canal. The breeze was cool, the sun warm and the wildlife was enjoying it too. We got to see a few Turtles out sunning, Great Blue, Little Blue and Green Herons. The Coots are down for the Winter now and the Anhingas are starting to nest. The males are donning their beautiful green eyes in hopes of attracting a girl. The Great Egrets are all fluffy and we spotted a baby Gator. The canal offers a scenic place to spend the morning and with the old Cypress Trees lining the sides, it’s like stepping back in time.
