March and spring is here

New discoveries in the bayou. Mom and I went all the way up to the causeway through the third bayou from the bay. Saw 4 gators along the way and named 2: Ferdinand and Sparky. Sparky lay on the bank with us not 12 feet from him (what were we thinking?) but eventually slid into the water. The red-winged blackbirds are singing, the egrets and herons are flying and fishing, and the fish are jumping. Most of the bayou still looks brown but the green grass is pushing up through the brown grass from last year. The weather is nice and it feels like another kayak season!

Hi Anna,

Thanks for the comment on my blog, and how cool you are headed to Merritt Mill Pond and the Wakulla! I wonder where you are staying at Merritt MP. The campground there (Arrowhead) is not *quite* (understatement) like their website shows them... I will be on Merritt next week, and also the Wakulla! Maybe I will see you!
