Paddled for over 7 hrs! Rented from SUP Weeki (awesome place). Headed downriver first. Saw lots of manatees at Hospital Hole. Followed a manatee named Saul down the river once we got out of the residential neighborhood. Got almost to the ocean, and turned back when the ocean current pushed us back. Went back up the river, saw more manatees, and turned back slightly upriver from where we started. Will go back again and try upriver first!

Rented boards from an actual pirate. Current N-S was very strong. Took ~3 hrs to get to southern point of Caladesi Island, but only a half hour or so to get back to the pier. Spent most of the trip kneeling or sitting, but didn't fall in!

Halloween paddle! First session at this site, and maiden voyage for Val's 11' Rhizotomy board and Kialoa Insanity paddle. Launched at the end of Great River Rd right before the golf course, and made our way upstream along the river walk at Bayard Cutting Arboretum. Went under a low bridge, and saw lots of pretty fall colors!
