We were on the water at 9:50. We being Aaron, my niece's husband, and I. It is good that the launch site is next to the Drive. The front carrying handle on the Pungo broke completely off as I wheeled it from the beach Monday night. I had to cradle the front end in my arms across the sand and over the boardwalk. The deck bungees stretch too much for pulling
Aaron, getting situated. He had a big Pelican dry box for his camera. Tried to sit on top of it, would up sitting on the back of the kayak. As a flats fishing guide in Key West, he likes the high vantage point.
Shell covered mangrove roots out of the water at low tide
No entry allowed on the other side of Wildlife Drive
Nice thing about kayaking with a fishing guide, he sees the fish. "Snook" "Red" "Sheepshead" Aaron also saw an otter in the mangroves. I did not.
I can handle this commute
I did not go in. Probably had a beer, probably ate-I think niece Megan brought a tray of snacks down, I am forgetting as I write on Saturday. From the photos I do know I walked back to 12D to get my bike.
On the bike path at 3:45
Ospreys in monkey trees
On the bike again.
Pit stop at Gulf Side Park
Marker in the East End Deli lot.
Full moon and lighthouse, 10:15 PM. Ending this Tale.
