The Adventurous Woman take several trips a year to enjoy the outdoors.

Kayaking on the Weeki Wachee

We had a small group show up for our kayaking trip on the Weeki Wachee.  Everyone had a great time on the sunny day.   With the warm weather we enjoyed a swim.  We saw a manatee, which paddled under Kay’s kayak.  She thought it was going to flip her but all went well.  We launched at the top of the river at Weeki Wachee Springs State Park and took the shuttle back when we reached Roger’s Park.  It was a great day for all.

Rye Preserve Hike Trip Report

Here is the trip report by Gail and some pictures from the hike at Rye Preserve.

On Saturday, several adventurous ladies, including Christy, Kathy, Inta, Aleis, Karen, Sharon, Nina and Gail, completed a 3.6 mile hike in the woods of the Rye Preserve. 😁

Not much wildlife but we did have a black vulture following us overhead. Probably waiting for one of us to fall behind!😮

At the end of the hike we visited the Rye family cemetery with markers during the 1800’s.

Following tradition, we ate lunch at a local eatery, Woody’s River Roo Pub & Grill, located on the Manatee River, RT 301. Nice place to eat, right on the water!

A great hike, with a great group of adventurous ladies!🌲🍔🍻👟👍

Ready to work off some of that Thanksgiving meal?

Our final trip of the year will be to the Cross Florida Greenway – Land Bridge Trail near Ocala. If you have ever noticed a bridge across I-75 that has trees and other vegetation, this is it. This bridge was built in 1999-2000 and was the first true land bridge in the United States. You can read more about it here: http://floridahikes.com/cross-florida-greenway-the-land-bridge and here https://www.floridastateparks.org/trail/Cross-Land-Bridge

We will be hiking this trail on Saturday, December 5th. It will be about a two hour drive or so. We plan to start the hike at about 10:30.

Bring a hat, sunscreen, comfortable walking shoes, water and a snack.

We may go to lunch after the hike.
