This is Lido Key at Sarasota, FL on the Gulf coast. My hubby and I joined our Boat Club friends for a "Paddle!" Here we are in the Mangroves, a lovely narrow channel with crystal clear waters. The Mangroves are plants with NUMEROUS roots and literally hold sandy Florida together!
Here is a closer picture of the Mangroves, an important ecosystem to FL. Wish the clearness of the water showed better.
There I am waving in the background. We stopped at a sandbar outside of the Mangroves for a stretch...this was my first kayak trip so I appreciated the rest.
We had a relaxing adventure, picnic lunch and then packed up to head home. My effiecent Pruis can haul just about anything! Notice my FL license plate! I was able to get my "STAMPUR" plate again. It stands for rubber stamping & kitty cats! Currently we don't have any purring felines - sure do miss them!!
