Lakes Maitland, Nina and Minnehaha

Could have started with a bald eagle, or an alligator, but I'm going with the elusive belted kingfisher.

Weeki Wachee, Crystal River


 Leaving Rogers Park at 7:45

Headed up the Weeki Wachee River

I see that October 13,  2016 was a Thursday.   This must be the start of a 4 day weekend.


 Manatees




A spring run. I recall reading that, like the new spring on Juniper Creek, this opened up after Tropical Storm Fay, in 2008

New signs



Headed back down River

Checking out the "new" spring run.  Can't get very far





































Back to Rogers Park.  I continued paddling.
The creek to Mud River



Mud River

Back up the Weeki Wachee








Landed at Rogers Park.  Loaded the kayak and headed to the land entrance of Weeki Wachee Springs State Park

Inside the Newton Perry Underwater Theater












I'm not sure if the next few underwater pics are from the Weeki Wachee swim area or just the hand over the side of the kayak.  Usually the WW pics have more fish in them.  And the occasional manatee.






View from my room in Crystal River.  Forget the name, its on the west side of the highway, north of town.
Public ramp across the parking lot


Not the main part of the Crystal River





























Copp Brewery, Crystal River




Back at the hotel.
