|Now, there is no better pic to illustrate this is a true View From Our Kayak|
Made it back to the water and to the Silver River, a Central Florida paradise. Sorry for the delay but had a really hard time with my computer but finally is working at 60% capacity I would say. That is good enough for at least post some pics. Had a wonderful day at the Silver River: monkeys, manatees, gators, and much more...Here we go!!!!!!!

Put in/ Take Out: Ocala Boat Club(aka Ray's Wayside). For location and costs please check previous posts about this location. (the older the better)
One of my shortest days at the Silver River. Usually I take my time and the trip upstream itself can take me 5 hours. This time it took me "only" three with pic stops included. Two hours on my way back to Ray's Wayside, mostly because did stop for a while to take pics of a monkey troop. Here are the pics of my upstream trip...

A couple in a kayak told me about three manatees in a cove upstream. I did not find the three of them. Just found this one...not complaining though...

Did stop at the State Park launch site for 15 minutes. Stretched my legs, my back, are a snack I brought with me, and started my downstream paddle. Lots of activity at the park due the Spring Fest. Saw a red kayak belonging to my mentor Master Dave Cannon, from Dave's Yak Tales. Did not have the chance to say hello. Here are my pics during the downstream paddle...

Spent around 25 minutes with the monkey troop, then decided to continue. Here are the rest of the pics...

Made it to Ray's Wayside at 3:30 PM. I cannot remember finishing a paddle at the Silver River so early. It was a good one regardless. Hope you like the pics. See you soon. Let us see from where we will be sharing the Views From Our Kayak.
