And then there were 3... We had the river all to ourselves!

The 3 of us paddled the flooded St Johns this morning and as we started our journey not a soul was on the river. First we went up into Blue Springs. It's always a treat to see the dark water change in the blink of an eye to the clear, cool, spring water. There were Turtles and Anhingas sunning on the fallen trees. As we headed toward the swamps we found Kingfishers, Great Blue Herons, White Ibis and Little Blue Herons. It's so neat to be able to kayak through these normally dry areas so we took a break there and absorbed the peacefulness. Drifting downstream we found a large Bald Eagle watching us from the tallest tree. What a beautiful day to be on the water.
