The threats of bad weather chased a few paddlers off, but the storm came early overnight and was all done by the time we paddled. The Chassahowitzka was beautiful. Quite a few Sleepy Manatees around the head spring. Lunch at the crack was peaceful, with not a lot of traffic on the river today. There was wake of turkey vultures sleeping in the trees, a pod of pelicans floating in the river (seen later on the trip roosting in a tree), and an Osprey circled the group as we paddled down the main river. We here off the water in time to make it home for the big game. Hope everyone had a good time on the water with us. Thank you all for coming out and enjoying this wonderful river with us.
