Just twenty minutes on the water on the way to Sanibel.  Traffic west out of Orlando gets worse every time I try to get away on Friday after work.  Crawling on the 408 from Kirkman, to the Turnpike, to the 429.

Lake Maitland

I did not test the conductivity of my kayak. Or, paddle.  Driving along Alabama Drive, I saw a oak that crushed a boat house on the Venetian Canal.  Likely brought down the power lines, too.
