Gizmo’s mom here, taking over the blog for Gizmo today…he’s OK with it. We’re going to take a kayak trip down the Weeki Wachee River , one of my favorite paddling trips, mostly because it is a great place to interact with manatees. I love watching these peaceful creatures and they allow paddlers to get obligingly close. That’s the bow of my ‘yak in the picture.
and eagles…here’s a nest…couldn’t catch a photo of the residents.
Just look at the face on this guy…how could you not love him? Sadly, in this shot you can see the propeller scars on his back. One of the greatest dangers these gentle giants face is being run over by thoughtless, careless boaters.
If you ever get down to Florida and want to spend a few peaceful hours on the water I can’t recommend this trip enough.
