Sunrise over the wetlands.
just around the bend…..
Look at the talons on this Osprey.
This little channel isn’t much wider than our dingy, but is at least 5’ deep. It widens out when you get back in there a little ways. This will be our next anchorage. I think we can turn the houseboat around if the wide spot with the dingy.
We saw several Bald Eagles.
same bird…different angle.
so beautiful I couldn’t pass up any of these pictures. South of Lake Monroe seems to be a preferred area for them.
A handsome black bull….cows are not an unusual sight along this part of the river. When we came thru yesterday we spotted a herd of several hundred along the river. There were a couple of cowboys with their pickups and sunshades set up. Today when we came thru the same area we didn’t see any. They may have moved them to new pasture.
Palm trees being up rooted when the water was higher. There is a 25 mph speed on this part of the river and the wakes really erode the shoreline.
There is a car show in Sanford at the riverwalk…just behind the marina on Lake Monroe. Jim was going to go but the water was too rough for the dingy ride in. It is amazing….there is a lot of seawall along the riverwalk and not one ladder to get out of the lake. I guess no one has ever fallen in.
We are anchored for the night at Butcher’s Bend at G 109.
