A buck ran across Sand Road as I drove through the Seminole State Forest to the launch site. Underway at 9:15.
Plants cross the Creek near where there is a high bank on the left side. But not very deep, the plants, not the water. Easy to push through.
Saw no wildlife during my short time on the Wekiva, this great egret is back on Blackwater Creek
Saw two deer. Heard them first, maybe they sensed me, as they dashed into the trees before I could get a photo.
Had to duck under some trees.
This is where I got around the tree that's been down since June.
New dead fall. I power paddled through it. Well, half way, then pulled on the branches to get over.
It was hot. Florida in July. 96. I thought of not biking, but as I had not rode Saturday at Cedar Key, I had to do it today. Besides, I saw one deer from the car, two from the yak. Surely I'd see three from the bike.
Do two deer, a rabbit, and a raccoon equal three deer?
Not bad for a 30 minute ride. Back at the launch, I saw the first people of the day. A father and his to young sons were fishing. On the way out, one car. From the open waters of the Gulf around the Cedar Keys Saturday, to tree canopied Blackwater Creek Sunday, I had a fantastic weekend.
