Way Down on the Suwannee River...
That’s where we were in my inflatable Sea Eagle kayak the day after Christmas. Usually my family and I try to plan something “different” for the week after Christmas. This year we decided to go snorkel with the manatees in Crystal River Florida. But before we did that we had the opportunity to go on a moonlight paddle.
Since I haven’t had the opportunity to use Sea Eagle much and get comfortable with it, I decided we needed to go put in and let me practice a little. Well it couldn’t have been a “worse” day for trying it out. The wind was blowing and the Suwannee River is quite wide. It was white capping a little and I’ll have to admit I was a little uneasy. But I did have my trusty personal flotation device around my waist, thanks Betsy from work.
