Scuba divers

With the cool Suwannee River water mixing in, I did not stay in long enough to look for the remains of the Madison.  Scuttled in the run during the Civil War.

The wind shifted, south to north.  Temperature dropped several degrees

Ruth Springs Run

Have to walk to the Spring.

Little River Spring.

Had a sandwich under a roofed picnic shelter as the rain began

Scuba divers were in the Spring.  As it was getting chilly, I did not swim

Landed at Patrician Oaks, 4:55.  The rain opened up as I loaded the kayak.

Headed home.
