My brother Scott came to visit. After much food and drink, we wanted to paddle, but we had plenty of rain. Today was a pleasant surprise so we put in at Trout Creek and headed out to the cove and river. Along the way we saw and heard manatee and spotted two gators.
19 people, 18 boats and one missing scupper plug! What a great morning after the Friday rains. Water levels very high, lots of fish activity but the Bull of the Creek gator was nowhere to be found!. Shot 3 hour leisurely paddle.
10 paddlers trying a new spot to enjoy the full moon. We put in at the boat ramp next to River City and paddled across and around downtown, including two urban creeks, McCoy and Hogan. Urban creeks = drainage and trash collectors. I normally try to leave the areas I paddle cleaner than I found the. In this instance I opened not to as I would need a barge and protective gear.
A slow Sunday paddle with Mark and Brendan. Brendan spotted a manatee. We saw a large gator, at least 8 feet, and a smaller 3 footer. Finished up at Outback Crab Shack for some wings.
Wekiva state park to High Banks on the St.
This was a group kayak with the Florida kayak meetup before they close the spring's to paddlers. We saw many manatees and babies. Afterwards we possess out Snake Creek to find some dry land fir lunch. Weather was perfect and not a cloud in the sky. Meet some really great people and some other hurricane kayak fans too.
There weather was perfect 60 degrees, and the water calm,so we packed a saw in the kayaks to see if we could paddle past the obstacles.
The tide was low and we were only able to get as far as a large downed tree on the back end off 6 mile..we did get out at a sandy launch way back there. We walked quite awhile in rather high ground that were think is part of Pointed Creek.
Three brothers head out for a paddle on Six Mile Creek and get side tracked on a tributary,. We get rained on wet,and have a beer at Outback Crab Shack while watching a jet board demonstration.
Headed south to see what the glow was all about
Took my brother in law Larry out to Six Mile Creek for a Sunday paddle. After a long hot week with some of hurricane Arthur passing us by. We paddle Six Mile Creek under clear blue skies clear weather, and a welcome break in humidity. I wanted to go as far as we could and we did.
Just a four hour tour of Saint Augustine intra-coastal by boat ending at the Matanzas beach area. Rented a pontoon boat from Vilano Beach, captained by Jari Steinborn and first mate Nicole. We cruised the area around old Saint Augustine and headed south to Matanzaz Inlet passing several pods of dolphins and Fort Matanzas.
We ventured to a new location after losing out to bad weather for the full moon paddles. Haw Creek sounded like the place to go with my friend Chris and a newer yakker, Mindy.Tucked away in western Flagler County lies Haw Creek Preserve, a 1,005-acre tract of land bordering Haw Creek for about two miles on its southern boundary.
After a particularly cold period thanks to a polar vortex; good weather for the weekend made us want to explore the Silver River. We felt the warm snap would bring out the wildlife and hopefully the much storied monkeys of Silver River.
So my brother Gregg and I set of to Ray's Wayside to paddle to the head spring and back. Rain and drizzle all the way from St.
We closed out the year with the great winter day paddle from Durbin to Palmetto Leaves Park. My brother Greg and friend Dennis put in off of racetrack road and noodled around the area south of Racetrack as far as we could get. Then we headed out through the trail and stopped at Clark'sn and had lunch on the dock and then continued on to St Augustine Road.
