As promised, here are some pictures from a kayaking trip with (you guessed it) Catherine and Eugene to the Ocala National Forest on Juniper Creek. This was a wonderful afternoon trip in the cool, crystal clear waters of this spring feed creek. Catherine advised that we purposely start as late as possible to avoid being overtaken by faster kayakers allowing us to leisurely enjoy the surroundings. This worked out pretty well. We did encounter a family horribly out of their element in a canoe that was stuck against a deadfall – they were having a hell of a time and just didn’t know what they were doing. I was able to ‘rescue’ them from the deadfall (and not get eaten by a gator in the process). Darryl and Catherine also had the pleasure of watching a local get bitten by a water moccasin while attempting to grab it out of the water – alcohol may have contributed to this incident. I believe this trip was in late-April or early-May of 2007.
