Yep, that's my new manatee friend checking out my kayak...can you spot my shadow taking the picture? :)
This alligator and I, however? Not really friends. He lunged at my boat shortly after this picture to escape back into the river.
It was an absolutely beautiful day, if a bit chilly. I was able to snap this beautiful shot of my Mom in her kayak:
And a friend we were kayaking with took the first ever picture of the two of us in our kayaks together!
We're exhausted today after kayaking 15 miles (AKA 6 hours pretty much without stopping!). Yeah, I can barely move. Have been very much enjoying my extended vacay, though. I really needed a breather from work!
