I was on the other side of this bridge, in the kayak, Saturday. Out of the water at 9:15. Now I have explored all of Rock Springs Run. I have before, but not in a 24 hour period.

These wooden rails remind me of Hubbard Park in Shorewood. On the Milwaukee River.
45 minutes later, I was launching the kayak at Katie's Landing.
It was windy, so it was nice that the way was open on the west side of the River. More protected. Saw a glossy ibis.
In Florida, pre-Columbian cultures are identified by their pottery. Will future archaeologists say 20th century North America began with the can opener culture, followed by the short lived pop top culture, 1967-1981, followed by the pull tab culture?
I expected to see many alligators on a sunny afternoon. I did not. Saw another baby, earlier. It slid of a log into the water before I got a pic. Only it was not a log, it was mama. I took a picture, but got the dreaded white screen. Oh oh, that happened with the last camera.
This might be wear I turned back. Two motor boats went up River, one down. So, instead of being behind 2, I trailed one. Past the campsite, not to Blackwater Creek
Landed at 2:18. 3.5 hours on the River. Good to have a short day after Saturday's 10 hour epic.
