Lovely Day for a Paddle in Ocala
I spent the weekend in Ocala (sometime I’ll share more about that trip) attending the Florida Outdoor Writers Association Annual Conference. Friday was activity day and although a fishing tournament and trip to the firing range were tempting (that’s sarcasm) I opted to take a paddle up and down Silver River in Silver River State Park. I was one of two solo paddlers so we were matched up (his wife Peggy runs a boat tour company) so off we went.
The trip was spectacular despite hiking 3/4 mile in partial mud to the launch site and paddling up stream about 2 miles, just meant the trip back was pretty much a float. Enjoy some photos from opens in a new windowOcala over on Flickr.
