Kayaking near Orlando then headed to the Beach!!

Alan and Nero came out to paddle with us on the St Johns River and Blue Springs this morning. The river is running nicely since the recent rains. With an early start we were able to kayak into the spring run before the swimmers took to the water. Floating back downstream we were greeted by 4 Manatees. A Mother with her calf and 2 others were suspended in the crystal clear water. Leaving the Manatees and heading up the St Johns we ventured into the shady swamps of Snake Creek. A Green Tree Frog hitched a ride and there are tons of Apple Snail Eggs which is always a good sign. We got to see a few Gators, Purple Gallinules, Swallow-tailed Kites, Ospreys, Little Blue Herons, Turtles out sunning and some Limpkins too. The St Johns is never lacking in its wildlife. #KayakingWithKenny
