I my 20's I had a mustache. In my 50's I tried to grow a beard, and failed. Did not shave during my week at the Sweetwater Springs cabin. That began on April 29. Trimmed it down to a van dyke. The jazz cat look for my trip to New Orleans. This is as thick as it got.
I shaved it all off
And got in the kayak
I was not very interesting
Dam at the Upper Lake
Landed back at the Park Road bridge. I think it rained, which is why there are fewer pictures than on the way up.
It did rain. Pics from the camera in the watertight case.
At the concession, before heading home.
With a stop at the BrewPop Brewery in Auburndale.
Had a groupon for two flights. Did not finish it. None of the 8 I tasted was good enough to fill a growler
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.
