1.5.13 What a way to spend a winter’s day

We started out early to get a good crossing of Lake George. FL lakes are shallow and can get rough once the wind picks up. It was a good crossing.

This is the sign that greets you at the entrance to Silver Glen Springs. We normally anchor in that spot about half way up the run. That little bulge on the L side.


As we were getting ready to set the anchor….a Manatee swam right under us. Jim had to shut down the motor so we wouldn’t injure it with the prop.


We very seldom see Manatees in here but today there were 4 swimming in the run about 50’ from our anchorage. We watched them all day.

I rowed out in the dingy and let it drift past them for pictures and videos. I don’t have good reception now so will have to post the videos later.

This Pelican sat on a post at the entrance and watched us cruise by.


I took a quick dip….the water felt pretty cold, but once in it was nice.
