Paddling the kayaks on the St Johns River Thursday November 5, 2015

Out and about on the St Johns River today. November 5th was sunshine, 87 degrees, cool breeze and yep that's what Florida is all about! The Climbing Astor is in full bloom along with the yellow Primrose. We saw one young Manatee as it swam under our kayaks in the spring run. In the big St Johns and Snake Creek area we spied many birds. The Great Blue and Little Blue Herons, Great and Snowy Egrets, Red-shouldered Hawks, White Ibis and a few Wood Storks were all out feeding this morning. We paddled into the floodplain swamps and took a break then headed to the boat launch with the breeze at our backs. We drifted past several Turtles out sunning and got to see one small Gator. It was a fun time on the water!
