Another paddle on the Silver River today in Silver Springs, FL but no rain – all sunshiny although skies were partly cloudy. We saw some nice sized Florida gar, lots of Cormorants and Anhingas, Cooters and Sliders (turtles), Little Blue Herons, Wood Ducks and Ibis.
It was a great day for gator watching – everything from little babies around 8 inches long to a big ‘un about 7 feet with a very broad head.
We also saw a couple of monkeys – actually Rhesus macaques. The one of them charged down the Sweet Gum branch at us, so we backed up another 20 feet. Then she grabbed some berries. Maybe she thought we were threatening her breakfast.
