The only one, and only part of one, of the 15-20 alligators I saw, that I got a picture of. Gators were not the only animals I saw, but did not capture on film. Or, rather, digital. The always skittish wood ducks. But, blue herons, great blue herons, and a yellow crowned night heron also proved elusive.
Frequent readers know there are 2 places I paddle midweek. Rock Springs Run and the Winter Park/Maitland Chain of Lakes. RSR, where I can swim in Wekiwa Springs, washing off some of the sweat and grime before work. Chain of Lakes, close enough to home to return to shower. My plan today was to use some of the rinse off the kayak water to pour over me. Had soap, wash cloth, and towel. But, due to the barricades, I finished paddling earlier than planned and had time to go home, shower, and download the first few photos.
