Looks like I forgot my hatch cover as I launched from Wilson's Landing
Headed up the Wekiva River
Wekiva Falls is a large, private, mostly RV campground. The "Falls" is a concrete tower in a Sulphur spring. I swam in it over 10 years ago when the site was undergoing an ownership change and no one was around. It now costs $8 to enter.
On the Little Wekiva River
Kind of awesome to get a blue heron and a buck in the same frame
The rubber band holding the beach ball hatch cover snapped
As I post these photos 4 months later, I had a heck of a day, wildlife wise.
I paddled farther up the Little Wekiva than I ever had before
It is fed by several springs. Unfortunately, the springs are on private property.
It became too shallow to paddle, so I turned around.
Back on the Wekiva River, I found the Twin Mounds site
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
