|Great blue heron|
|Young great blue heron?|
I think I saw as many alligators as people.
The alligator in the opening photo was on the above log when I entered the Seventeen Runs. I landed, and ate lunch.
|Red shouldered hawk. No, its not about to dive. Just the angle from under the tree.|
Apple snail shell. Link from the University of Florida.
|Black crowned night heron. And turtle.|
I returned to Trout Creek Park at 3:45. Did not land, paddled up Trout Creek
I did not see the huge gators that are in scenic creek. Just a young blue heron.
Landed at 4:40.
Used the dock again. If paddling with a group, it would be more efficient for everyone to land on the bank, as the dock has room for one kayak. Or two, if the second paddler enters from the other side. But, one would still have to wait for the other to lift the yak and walk up the ramp.
I went for a short bike ride. Hillsborough Wilderness Park has a great trail system. I think I got off the trail here.
