I woke up on the first Sunday of 2016 to rain in High Springs, Florida. And rain over most of the peninsula. But, a better forecast in the Panhandle. So, I headed to the Wacissa River, a location I had only been to once before.
Editor's note. I am not certain if the two above pics are from Cassidy, or the springs near the boat ramp.
Big Blue Spring
Big Blue has two runs
Underwater pics did not turn out. Condensation on the camera. It was fun to change out of my cold weather gear. Windbreaker, long shirt, long nylon pants, into my swim suit on the floating raft. Had it, and the spring, to myself.
Must be another spring. Limestone and clear water
Back at Big Blue
A couple in a motor boat left the can on m raft.
I picked it up
Juvenile blue heron
Fancy name for an outhouse
2 out of 3 vehicles contain Packer fans
A long drive home. Good thing the Pack had a night game
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.
