Doing a little kayaking in the Springs of Central Florida

Colleen brought the crew down from NY for their third kayaking tour with us and the St Johns River was the place to be on this warm Summer day. Hugging the shaded tree line we paddled up to the Spring Run and marveled at the Longnose Garfish, Bass, Grass Carp, Mullet and Tilapia swimming all around us. Then we headed to the swimming area for a dip in the clear, cool, 72 degree water of Blue Springs. Back in the kayaks we set off to the St Johns, found a shady spot to have a snack and a cool drink of water. With Cicadas buzzing in the trees, Spanish Moss swaying in the breeze and the Great Blue Heron feeding as we drift past; this is the epitome of Central Florida. It feels timeless out here on the river’s backwaters. As we say in Summer – “Paddle on My Friend”! #KayakingWithKenny
