On Tuesday afternoon, a gang of five and one-half couples loaded into three cars and drove to Manatee Park in North Fort Myers. We are agile and daring and indeed we will kayak.
|We donned the life vests and took our 8 second kayaking lesson. |
This should be interesting... Whistles are attached to each life vest -- uh oh.
Nancy, Mary and Ken listen intently to the teacher.
So off we go... one by one... then two by two.
|Linda goes first through the rust colored water of the mangrove to Orange River.|
|Wayne. This scene makes me think of the movie, Deliverance|
|I put my camera in a Ziploc plastic bag. Much time is spent zipping and unzipping.|
|Linda is solo in the yellow kayak. Charlie and Joyce in the blue one.|
Fran and Mary on the far right.
|Joyce and Charlie|
|Ken and Nancy. |
Ken thinks he's in Olympic competition -- and that he won.
|Mark and Janie|
|The Wayner finally got his fill of manatee sightings too.|
Then... back at the campground...
|Fran and Mary (and Zoey who didn't want to be photographed)|
