Leaving Myakka River State Park

Arrival at Ding Darling NWR, Sanibel

During the 2 hour drive, I did what I always do.  Listened to NPR.  And heard the sad news from my adopted hometown.  The massacre at Pulse.

Upper Myakka Lake

 Squirrel fleeing high water at the cabin

 Welcoming committee as I launched the kayak on Upper Myakka Lake

 Looking for where the Myakka River enters Upper Myakka Lake
Still looking

The concession

Inside the concession, well outside, on the balcony.

 Back at the cabin
Where you can see why it was a good idea for the cabins to be placed on pillars.
 To get them above the annual summer rains

 All the water made me want to kayak.
 So I did

 The Myakka is very high when you can paddle behind benches on the bank
 And, accessible picnic tables
 Kayak accessible

Touching the Park Road bridge.

 Sharing photos at the concession

 Wet trail at the Canopy Walkway.
Wet? More like flooded.

 Ankle deep, at least.

Last summer, before the pillars, the cabin would have been flooded.
