Withlacoochee River – April 13, 2016

Nice little trip along the Withlacoochee (South) River from Camp Izzard boat ramp on Riverside Drive near FL 200 to Centennial Park boat ramp in the city of Dunnellon — a little over 10 paddling miles .  Cloudy skies for most of the day, but no rain until on the way home.  The spring greenery was breathtaking and damselflies decorated our boats the whole way.
