Play Time - Paddle to Caladesi Island

We worked hard for 4 whole days! It's time for a vacation don't you think? Thursday was the last day of the FMCA convention. Friday was a travel day. We drove 365 miles to the Tampa/St. Pete area to visit with Lynne and Johne. Then we played all weekend. There's lots of waterplay available in the Tampa Bay area. We decided to paddle to a small island called Caladesi. You can't get there by car. Here it is on Google Earth:

What a great day. Notice the motorhome on the beach. Pretty nice day camp eh? Hey George, are you watching? Kayaking to Caladesi Island

For those of you who wonder how I dare take my precious camera out on the water. Here's a photo of the case I keep it in when I paddle. Jimmy gave me this Pelican case as a gift. They are really THE best way to keep equipment safe and dry. Thanx Jimmy!
