Check engine light came on. On the way to work, Monday, May 4. So I left early. Dealer said they were closing in 30 minutes, come back tomorrow. I left, with the intention of going elsewhere. The light turned off and has stayed off. Going back to work was not appealing. I went to Mead Garden in Winter Park. The Bartram Trail sign is new since my last visit. 10 year ago
As is the above amphitheater
The venue I remember
A garden needs pollinators. Viceroys Not monarchs. The thick back vein is the key.
I think the pink bird is fake
10 years ago, when I was self employed, I used to stop here during mid week bike rides.
The boardwalk was not in good shape then. Worse now.
A very pleasant 90 minutes. It is now June 7. No issues with the car.
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.
