, Sunday morning, October 9. 2011, last day for Tom and I at Econfina River State Park. I got up for a paddle. Took Tom's kayak off my car, then carried mine to the launch. In the water at 7:40. Tom had requested I not wake him. Not intentionally, anyway. He said my snoring kept him up the night before. A Cannon, snoring? Unheard of. (my mother and sisters-in-law shake their heads)
Like Friday afternoon, I was paddling at low tide. Unlike Friday, I paddled down River.
The wind was at my back. Drizzled a bit to. I can't complained. Over 5 and a half inches fell on my home Saturday. I picked the right weekend to be out of town.
I turned back at 8:30 looking at this tower. Wonder if it marks the mouth of the Ecofina. The first photo of this Tale is looking to the left of the marker.
I landed at 9:08.
Tom landed at 9:30. He said he went down river first, then up, until it got too shallow. He saw an alligator.
Check out was 11:00 am. Tom left before me, I was out at 10:45. Never saw our landlord. I was going to paddle the Aucilla River, having seen a launch site at the Highway 98 bridge. But, it began to rain as I left. So, I headed towards home. Thinking of stopping at Fanning Springs State Park, and paddling the Suwannee River. Light rain, so I kept going. Maybe the Silver River? Nope, a deluge as I approached Ocala. So, no kayaking stop on the way home. Which turned out to be ok, as I got home in plenty of time for the Brewer game. In my heart, I knew they won on Friday, but I did not know, if you know what I mean.
