I saw an otter before turning around, here. The upstream view.
A few people on the Run, and the Wekiva as I returned to Wekiwa Springs State Park.
It was not. But, below, there was an alligator.
And turtles. I looked up, and there was dedicated paddler and Park volunteer, Joanne.
Sorry about the lousy picture.
We chatted, and a green heron landed. We both took pictures.
Neither of us noticing the little gator, which can't be seen in this picture.
I landed just past 1:30, loaded the kayak, and went for a walk.
After no deer, on the paddle, I hoped for one on my stroll. Just as squirrel. This can be a good area for deer at dusk. As I walked, I had the idea in the future, bike to Sand Lake, and walk there. Less people. Also less shade, so a good winter hike.
I walked a bit over 2 miles, adding the Wet to Dry Boardwalk. Or for me, Dry to Wet.
I choose not to get wet, forgoing a dip in the Spring. Had to get some beer and munchies for the game. A classmate from grade school has the quote of the day.
"Would the aliens who kidnapped the Packers and replaced them with zombie clones, please return them?"
