Paddle the Peace River

Florida has been in a drought for quite some time and the Peace River showed it. Luckily, a kayak only draws a couple of inches so we were able to paddle anyway - but we did have to walk our kayaks over a couple of spots. Mom got her own kayak because the park provided. Here's Richard helping us load kayaks in the park's truck and take us up to the launch spot. ahhh - even with low water it is still peaceful. What the photos don't show you is the heat. 96 degrees in the shade - and there wasn't much shade. Even all the alligators were hiding. We didn't see even one.
