Crystal Clear Love

 Yesterday… our motley crew of summer vacationers took a 4 hour canoe trip down the  crystal clear waters of the Weeki Wachee River.  What an incredible day trip… We packed a lunch and reported to the Kayak Shack bright and early.  We ( 16 kids, 5 moms, 1 dad ) were loaded in a van with our canoes and shuttled to our load in destination.  

The river was crystal clear 74• with a slow moving winding current that picked up here and there.  We stopped along the way to jump into swim holes, swing off rope swings, and on parts of the river we paddled by a variety of different architectural river homes ranging from mid-century to 3 story tree houses. The highlight to the entire trip was spotting a momma manatee and her baby calf gently swimming together up stream.  If you decide to canoe Weeki Wachee, start early.  The river does get crowded, so get a early start.  After our canoe trip we stopped at Becky Jack’s food shack… it was delish!  All in all I’m looking forward to exploring another Florida spring real soon…
