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.

We had a small group of five ladies and only one was on her first tour of the mangrove tunnels.  We hit the tide about right paddling through the tunnels.  We saw lots of fiddler crabs crawling on the mangroves.  And fortunately, no snake sightings. Continue reading

Chassahowitzka River with the Kayak for Kancer Kure (K4KK) Group

Another great day on the river on Saturday, May 9th. We joined the Kayak for Kancer Kure (K4KK) group for a paddle on the Chassahowitzka River.  We had about a dozen paddlers all together.  The campground had run out of single kayaks to rent by the time we got there so two ladies shared a tandem boat.  Although they chose to take only one paddle on the trip, this did not dampen their enthusiasm for fun.  They laughed all along the way.  We paddled to Maggie’s Crack and some of us tested out the rope swing there.  It was a great way to cool off.  Continue reading
