Kayaking the Estero River/day 7


We left the resort around 8 am yesterday to get an early start on the river. Our friend, Chuck, got a single and E and I rented a double seater kayak for our adventure.

I love this river. It is shaded by trees on both sides, is not very deep and the current does most of the work. The river winds past the old Koreshan settlement, a couple of mobile home parks, a few large homes (one of which I call Tara) and down miles and miles of lovely bamboo, mangroves and live oaks. Got a great shot of a turtle sunning himself on a huge limb out over the river; I just need to down load that one from my camera.

Today(Wed./day 8) is Grayhound racing day at the track for the guys and the day trip to Sanibel and Captiva for the gals. Three of the guys went shark hunting last night for four hours but no one is up and about yet for me to get the fish stories from them.

My honey says breakfast is almost ready so off I go....we are having so much fun!
