With the days getting longer, I can kayak after work. But, I will not launch on a Friday, from Dinky Dock, again. Weekly fishing tournament. Packed lot. Got a space, and with a kayak, I did not have to wait my turn at the boat ramp.
Launched from the beach at 6:03 PM
Headed to the canal as I figured there would be less activity in Lake Osceola than Lake Virginia
Capen House. It was moved, by barge, to the grounds of the Albin Polasek Museum to save it from the wrecking ball.
Stations of the Cross on Good Friday
A couple was on the Lake. He in kayak, she on paddleboard. She, "I can't paddle this thing. It's slow, and won't turn" Me: "I'm no expert, but I think the upturned end should be in front" It made a world of difference. She thanked me.
Taking no chances on salvation
Back to Lake Virginia
Into Lake Mizell
Great blue herons nesting
Lots of air traffic. All airlines promise a 7 PM arrival time at Orlando International for Easter weekend
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
