I had some company today while paddling the Wekiva. Family trips are definitely different than 1 or 2-person trips, but they’re fun in their own way. Seeing my preschool daughter zen-out on the water is pretty amazing.
We launched from Wekiwa Springs again, rented a 3-person sit-on-top ‘yak for the family, and dropped both boats in at the launch. We stayed in the main channel all the way to Wekiva Island, docked the boats, and had a few beverages while my daughter played with some new friends she made. (Kids make friends so easily, don’t they?) Stopped on the way back to get a few pics of the sunning alligator, and called it a day.
Here’s the map. (It’s cheap this time – I didn’t capture a route with the GPS.)
