Haulover Canal

Launched from the end of the dirt road on the north side of Haulover Canal at 8:47
Mullet Head Island











After circling Mullet Head Island, I usually paddle across the entrance to Haulover Canal, and explore canals to the south.  But today, manatees to the north diverted my attention.







 Bairs Cove
 Where manatees get up close and personal
No reason to touch them


 Mosquito Lagoon

 Mid 20th Century ruins.  Everything had to go when NASA came in.

 Manatee Overlook




Landed at 12:10
 New information  kiosk at the curve in the dirt road.
 Scrub jay trail
 Did not see any

The view from my table at El Leoncito
 A new spot for me.
Cuban and Mexican, with a view
Complimentary chips and salsa
Black bean soup for the Cuban
 Enchilada and taco for the Mexican

NASA's Vehicle Assembly Building. I asked my waiter what is was like here during the Space Shuttle days.  Busy,

 The red roofed building is a B&B


Potential future rocket launch, kayak, and dinner location.

I was going through the pending posts. You have an impressive backlog there Master Dave. :)

And continuing to back up. Having my computer down almost 2 full days does not help. Nor does kayaking 4 days a week. ;)
