There was a fair amount of boat traffic, it was a holiday weekend, after all. But, Salt Run is wide, and I stayed off to the side. Near Lake George, the channel narrows, and for a while is Slow Speed. It goes back to Safe Operation, and was getting crowded, so I turned back
Campers on a shell mound
Trying to replicate Saturday's damsel fly photo.
Landed at 2:15
I was parked in an area behind a gate. On the instructions of the rental concessionaire.
All the way to Highway 19.
A contrast from the crowds at Salt Springs. One other car in the parking area. I got on the trail ahead of them and their mutt.
On a weekend I read the observation tower at Pennisula State Park in Door County was closed due to unsafe conditions, I thought it prudent to inspect the supports of the staircase down to the sink hole.
Where, at this spot, a mother bear with 2 cubs crossed the road from right to left.
After dinner paddle on Mill Dam Lake
Tadpoles at the National Forest Boat Ramp. A gentleman was standing on the ramp, watching them.Chatty chap. Worked for Martin Marietta in the early days of the space program. At the Cape as rockets were blowing up shortly after launch. Later, lead 3 different bass fishing organizations. Now says he owns thousands of acres of Bolivian land. I told him when I hear news of American investment in Bolivia, I'll think of the guy at the boat ramp. An only in Florida moment.
