Placida Bay Paddle
My hubby, in the grey t-shirt, and I recently kayaked with our friends in the Punta Gorda, FL Boat Club. Here we are waiting to launch...chatting about low tide and breezy conditions.
This business had LOTS of these STAGHORN FERNS hanging from trees. These fern are epiphytes or air plants. They have antler-like fronds up to 3 feet long!
The tide was out...demonstrated by the sand bar on my right which was in the center of the bay!
Then our FEARLESS leader, Deb, ran aground! She got out of her kayak into ankle deep water and we all had a good laugh!
The low tide wasn't great for kayaking, but the wildlife loved it for feeding!
These are White Ibis, very common in SW Florida. The are wading and also in the trees.
This is the Kayak business's "not so feral" feral kitty named KAYAK KAT. She is spayed and well fed and sleeps wherever she wants! After our picnic lunch we headed for home. A very pleasant day in SW Florida!
Awwww! Love the Kayak Kat! I once went hiking on a mountain that had a not-so-feral feral dog with a note attached to his collar explaining that the mountain was his home...This must be some sort of trend!
