A great day for kayaking with the Family March 16, 2014

Wind...Whaaat??? That wasn't going to hold these Adventure Buddies back. The Bald Eagles soared overhead and there were lots of birds to see. The Great Blue Herons are starting to sit on their nests now. Snowy Egrets, Little Blue Herons, Cattle Egrets, Moorhens, Tri-colored Herons and Limpkins were all on the move. As we worked our way toward the Manatee area we had a few encounters. In Snake Creek we got to hear a Barred Owl calling, she's a Momma with a nest in a big Pop Ash Tree...just waiting for her babies to hatch. There were a few small Gators there too and several Turtles out sunning. As we drifted back downstream we got a push from the winds while the Spanish Moss swayed in the tree tops. Life is good on the river!
