I was thinking of going to the Rainbow River on this day, Saturday, March 7, 2014, and paddling Lake Norris on Sunday. Until I saw that a bluegrass band would be performing at the East Lake County Library, Saturday. A Blackwater Creek double header was the thing to do.
It was windy
In addition to the osprey nests, there is a great egret rookery on Lake Norris
Take a bow
There is a spring, near the camp. I have yet to locate it.
The campground is a bit less than half way around Lake Norris. I decided to keep paddling onward.
Wanting to prove the sign wrong
Books and baked goods were for sale. I looked at both, bought brownies and chocolate chip cookies.
And this hat, at the booth Lisa K.D. was running for the Chamber of Commerce. I had meet Lisa on Rock Springs Run a few weeks before. Saw her post about the event on her FB page. So, if not for kayaking, and social media, I would not have known about Blackwater Creek, the bluegrass band. They will be playing at another event at the library on May 16. The East Lake Heritage Festival.
I think I will kayak, catch the second set, and Bill Belleville's presentation. Then, I will have 2 and a half hours to kill before day 2 of the Mount Dora Blues and Groove Fest. I think I will kayak. John Mayall is the headliner. http://bluesandgroove.com/
