Paddling in Florida's Winter, it's a magical time!

Brrrrr it was a bit chilly this morning on the St Johns River. Winter is finally here! Paddling in the sun was the theme of the day today. There were several Manatees out, most sticking close to the warm waters of the spring run. This made for some really good viewing. Lots of bird life out too; we saw Anhingas, Tri-colored, Great and Little Blue Herons, Great Egrets, Wood Storks and a few White Ibis. We got to see the Sandhill Cranes flying overhead and we spotted the Bald Eagle up on his usual roost. We also saw a Limpkin, got a good Wild Turkey flyby, saw several Turtles out sunning on the logs and even a few Alligators that were out catching some rays. It was a great day for a trip on the river!
