Honeymoon Island and Caladesi Island 

were a great place to practice.

Lots of happy kayakers and plenty

wildlife to view.

It was a warm day without much

wind, really nice.

With so much red tide, I have not

been able to get out as often as I would like.

It had not gotten to Honeymoon Island

when I got a chance to paddle there in

August. This is a beautiful area. Wish so

many friendly people.

The water was beautiful and

full of life - birds fish and manatee.

It felt good to be working out

on the Weeki Wachee River.

I can understand why the

mermaids live here :)

We got a late start to practice due to a sting ray puncture and cold weather, the first practice was at Hudson Beach in 60f weather with a water temp of 52f. After 45 minutes my behind was cold and wet enough to push me back to shore. it was good to be on the water again.
