Sunday, Feb. 22 Paddling the Indian River
Mike at the Old Homestead - Long Pt. County Park
Pelicans dive for fish spooked by porpoises.
Mike decides that laundry is first priority for the morning, even though Al assures him that each pair of underwear should be good for several days. Weather is warm and sunny for a change – who knew that Florida could be like this? Al decides that paddling is much more important. We pack up the trailer and Mike gets to the laundry and joins Al in a paddle to Sebastian Inlet State Park, about 2 miles south. Porpoises, Brown Pelicans and Royal Terns accompany us as we cruise the shallow waters and cross the Inlet to the park beach. A bite of lunch and a return paddle. Porpoises swish around chasing fish and the pelicans dive for the scattering minnows. Now off to Highlands Hammock for the next three days.
