Paddled back to the Canal, and as is my usual practice, checked out one of the dead end canals south of Haulover Canal for manatees and other wildlife. Nothing visible, other than a great blue heron that burst out of the small island off the entrance of the dead end canal. Into the alternate canal, that leads to Haulover Canal.

A dolphin arrived. The Florida Trifecta. Dolphin, manatee and alligator on the same paddle.
I left Bairs Cove, as had the dolphin. It, or one of its friends, was in dolphin cove. No pics turned out, but I did get the eagle riding the themals high overhead. So, is this the Florida quintuplet? Alligator, bald eagle, dolphin, manatee, rosette spoonbill.
A final dolphin just off the launch/landing site.
