Blue Spring St Johns Snake Creek Honton Dead River

Put the kayak in at Blue Spring State Park Sunday, January 20, 2008. A "cool" 50 degrees with a "lake wind advisory" Perfect for manatee watching and few people on the River. I was protected from the wind in the Snake Creek and canal portion of the paddle.

Here's a map of the area.

The first three birds are a wood stork, black crowned night heron and yellow crowned night heron. All birds I don't see every day. The picture with the canoes in the background is where I launched at Blue Spring State Park. A manatee is in the foreground.

I cheated. The manatee pictures above were taken from the boardwalk along the Run, not the yak. The wind prevented me from getting any publication worthy manatee pics while paddling.

Thank you. I took a glance at your site. Different subject matter, but, I'd think you'd agree the subject helps the photographer,whether it is Versailles, or Florida riverene scences.
