Indecision is not good when approaching fast water.
I swam, more pushed by the current into the mangroves. Shallow enough to stand. Tossed the camera hanging from my neck over my shoulder in an attempt to get it out of the water. Somewhere, sometime, somehow, it got away. As did my hat. And glasses. The lanyard I use when kayaking still dangling around my neck. I righted the kayak, bailed as much as I could, and got in. We took the scenic route, after all.
White pelicans from the car
Found it. But not camera or glasses. I had a spare pair of specs in the car. Just for this situation. As of Jan. 13, I have yet to get another pair.
Landed, loaded the kayak on the car, and headed home. And thought of being back in 6 weeks.
