This big log tree had been blocking the Creek for years. I first encountered it Christmas, 2009.
I was now on a part of Blackwater Creek I had never paddled before. Thanks to some hard working folks.
Another good deed
Camper has been here for awhile. Don't think the grassy roof is factory equipment.
High water, mid day, mid summer heat and thick forest made animal sightings few. A couple shy gators, a blue heron, a great blue heron, until.....
Perhaps the gator a few hundred yards up Creek that went under on my approach was mama
Proof I saw a blue heron
Last picture before the rain. You know how it is said that when lighting flashes, count, 1-2-3, and when the thunder booms at 3 seconds the storm is 3 miles away? I tired that. A bright, flash, my mouth formed an "O" and CRAABOOOMAAK!!! That was close.
Missed this new sign on Friday, and driving in, Saturday.
Turkey on the way out.
