For some reason, I usually do not see a lot of turtles on the Chaz.
Yellow crowned night heron
Sad. Dead dolphin
The Chassahowitzka and its tributaries have a different manatee season. I think it is because they use the many islands, tidal, and spring fed creeks as a travel corridor through the summer.
There was a time, when I was narrower and my then kayak wider, that I got out at the Dog Island Dock.
Ruth Springs is one of the prettiest paddles I do.
Back on Potter Spring.
Paddlers on the Chaz. Must be getting near the Campground. Which is the only place to put in on the Chaz and its tributaries.
One of the Crab Creek Springs
The dead dolphin. My first thought was, some idiot dragged it here.
A final look at the Chasshowitzka after loading the kayak.
