was planning on making a solo kayak trip the entire length
of the St. Johns river. In searching the internet for information
on my part of the river she kept coming up with the MarshBunny
She contacted me to see if I could advise her on the trail
and landmarks, and we met on the river one day.
We went in my boat
as far as Lake Hell 'n' Blazes and I
was able to tell her where to find the hunting cabins on
Bulldozer canal and point out landmarks to guide her way
across the lakes.
I really envied Michelle her proposed trip
on the river, but we had a very nice ride and exchanged a
lot of 'river stories'.
had also made plans to take Ed Vosatka back out to the
Union Cypress rail that day, so Michelle kayaked
out to Mosquito Island while I rode back in to pick up Ed.
Michelle was able to learn more lore of the river from Ed
as he winched the rail up out of the water, and took her
These are two funny people and we had lunch,
cut the rail, and laughed our behinds off!
the end of the day Michelle headed back across Lake Sawgrass in her kayak as I took Ed
and the rail back in my boat. After dropping Ed off I went
back to be sure Michelle had made it in and was treated to
a beautiful sunset!
