I launched from Fort Maitland Park at 8:30. Decided to paddle south across Lake Maitland to the Venetian Canal and Lake Oseola, instead of my usual northern trip to Lake Minnehaha. I saw fish, but no attack fish.
Didn't notice the sign when I took the above photo.
These cypress mark the Maitland-Winter Park border.
Into Lake Osecola.
The Fern Canal, leading to Lake Virginia is just east of the Polasek. I would have had to paddle hard, like two kayakers I saw at the start of my paddle, out for a workout, to get to Lake Virginia and back in time to get to work in a timely fashion. So, I headed back across Lake Osecola. And into the Venetian Canal.
Back to the city line.
Other than the two kayakers, I saw two other boats. One a City of Winter Park craft with a load of weeds.

I landed at 10:35, a two hour paddle. A nice day, other than a bleeping lazy bleeping guy fishing at the dock. To bleeping lazy to walk 40 frikkin yards. No, this nimrod has to park in between several no parking signs, right where I load my kayak. What a dick. Where are the cops when you need them?
