Arrived at Fort Maitland Park this morning, looked on the passenger seat, no camera. So, launch was delayed for 15 minutes as I went home. Gave it a chance to warm up 42 at 8 AM. Yesterday's low was 34. Back on 1-7-2010, it was 30, so Central Floridians, stop whining.
On Lake Maitland at 8:55
Was that an eagle or just a oddly shaped branch on Dog Island? Branch.
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
