A nice little paddle on the lower Ocklawaha River again today – postponed from last week when the predicted highs were in the 30s. A short paddle from Rodman Dam to State Rd 19 with a lunch break at Davenport Landing. Not as much wildlife as I’m used to seeing on this section but we did get to see a couple of otters fishing around Davenport Landing, lots of small gators (the largest one was about 5 foot), a bunch of Wood Storks, and probably the last of the fall colors.
I have to admit that a lot of the remaining fall color was the bright red of poison ivy at the base of the trees. 🙂 But there was still a little yellow from the Sweet Gums and red from the Florida Maples and a touch of bright green new growth in the cypress trees.
