Wonderful trip today as a guest of the Suwannee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association. We paddled the Steinhatchee River from Steinhatchee Falls down to the city boat ramp. The first 6+ miles heading south is a narrow, winding stream with a few pretty little drainage creeks. Then the river turns east towards the Gulf and becomes wider and deep enough for ocean-going boats. Of course, the wind picked up just at that point so the last 2 miles was a fun but hard slog against the wind and the chop. But my little Dulcinea (Eddyline Skylark) handled the waves very well and I got a bunch of pelican pics so it was well worth the effort. We topped it all off with a nice shrimp dinner in Steinhatchee. Thanks, Suwannee Chapter for the invitation. It was really good to spend the day with some of my old FTA friends.
