I did this paddle in the afternoon, after jury duty. Usual launch spot, Fort Maitland Park.
Into the Venetian Canal.
Into Lake Osceola.
The Fern Canal is just east of the Gardens.
Rollins College. Which I have always seen as a miniature UW Madison
The short Genius Canal is just east of where the Fern Canal enters Lake Virginia.
Short and sweet into Lake Mizell
The one percent
You need to time your chain of lakes paddle to make sure the tour boats, or others, aren't blocking the narrow canal
Back to Lake Osceola.
This bathing hawk has a different look from the usual red shouldered hawks I see. I'm thinking Coopers Hawk
Return to Lake Maitland.
Just a short visit, then, back to Lake Maitland
Approaching the canal linking Lake Maitland to Lake Minnehaha. Unlike hoity toity Winter Park, (I live in the non-toity section) Maitland does not name its canals.
This is better.
