Chassahowitzka

 
 
 Mermaid columns at the Quality Inn, Weeki Wachee
Bacon, and sausage on the free breakfast buffet.  I'll stay here again.
 Checked, out, and went to Weeki Wachee Springs.
 Today, there were two manatees.   Saturday, there had been only one.











Four videos for your entertainment.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 


I was in the water 25 minutes
View of the surface, 10:08
 View of pelican on the Chassahowitzka River, 10:55

A sad sight for this Packer fan on Super Bowl Sunday


 

 Vulture pitches in.

Back on Potter Creek


 


Approaching the Chas

It was a windy day, so I did not venture further out on the wider Chassahowitka River


 I explored Salt Springs Run
 


 
Back to the Chass, again
 




 



 


 Baird Creek


 

 The run to "The Crack" Spring.  To shallow to paddle, and I don't believe in walking.  Plus, from the abandoned canoe and kayak, people were already there.
 
 Baird Blue Spring

 


 


 

 Back on the Chassahowitzka
 


 


 
The pelicans I saw to start the day were still near the launch.



Manatees at Chassahowitzka Spring


 


 

 
Landed at 3:20.  I only had an apple and a granola bar while on the water, so the hotdog cart was a welcome site.

Need to wear your PFD in this kayak
