On the water, launching from the boat ramp at the end of the canal at the Myakka Outpost, at 7:27
Alligator just around the corner.
Great blue heron on the edge of the dam
Which is mostly under water.
Snowy egret on the other end of the dam. Enough depth in between to paddle over. I did not go far at all down River, turned back.
Only other boat on the Lake.
Ceazane, Monet et al were fortunate to have lived before the days of digital photography.
Landed at 8:25
Posted the first few pics from the balcony of the closed concession building. Finished the Tale, Sunday, at the Shell Island Beach Club, Sanibel.
