Kayaking The Silver River - Monday & Tuesday, October 3&4, 2016

Just a quick update since I am typing this from our Daughters house in Raleigh, NC.  We evacuated Silver River State Park, Ocala, FL on Wednesday and drove to Cedar Key RV Resort on Florida's west coast and dropped off Baby.  After that, we drove the truck to Murrells Inlet, SC and spent the night in a Hampton Inn.  We picked my Mom up on Thursday and drove to Raleigh to wait out Hurricane Matthew.  So here we sit, safe and sound, watching and waiting!!!

We were headed to The Keys and hopefully we will get down there for the rest of our reservations after all this terrible weather clears out.  Before we left Silver Springs, we were able to kayak the Silver River twice...Monday and Tuesday morning.  It was wonderful as we had the river to ourselves.  It is our favorite paddle and I would just like to share some photos of the beautiful things we got to see.  ENJOY...........
