Wacissa Friday

I took the afternoon off and met my paddling pal Peggy of Kayak Paddle Tales for a Wacissa trip. She was very happy to discover this old raccoon in the Blue Spring channel. We both snapped photos!

Down below Blue Spring we came to the eagle tree on our way back upstream. We found this eagle and another bird, which appeared to be a juvenile.

As we were coming back at the end of the afternoon, my bird magnetism started to work overtime and this wood stork swooped around our boats and nearly landed on top of us! A wood stork on the Wacissa...a first for both of us! Here he is in the foliage on the leeward bank.

We had to visit Bob The Tame Limpkin on our way downriver !

This is Peggy's giant strawberry treat! I was amazed at the size of it!

Of course, no trip on the Wacissa would be complete without encountering a runaway snowman enjoying the sunshine and warm weather in Florida!

  1. You sure can tell we were in the same place at the same time!! (Good thing we were, I would have turned green with envy at seeing your raccoon photo!) Nice job getting the eagle wings!
