Turned around, and came back down Creek
Went on a walk
A so called "super moon" was forecast to rise early in the evening. I thought it would be neat to see it rise over the Atlantic. So, I headed to the coast. After downloading the day's pictures. Which turned out to be a good idea.
Before the beach, a Mosquito Lagoon paddle. From Bethune Park
Ripples near the kayak. Fish, I thought. I should know better. And I should have put the camera in a higher, drier, position. As the manatee next to me took off with a splash. I should have done nothing. Instead, I paddled, thinking that would separate us. Only brought us closer. Until, with a shake of its fluke, the manatee shot away. A wall of water came into the kayak.
This was taken after some bailing. With camera 2, in a watertight case. Camera was done. Well, mostly. It can still take pictures, but without a working view screen.
Landed. The Atlantic is across the street.
