Kayaking on the Loxahatchee River

Last week I went for a 4-mile kayak trip on the Loxahatchee River in Riverbend Park in Florida. This was my 3rd time on the river. While there, we observed two alligators, many turtles and some interesting birds. It was a comfortable 80° F. The river, in the section we visited, is about as wide as a one or two lane road with many sharp twists and turns.

The alligator was resting on the bank in a bend in the river. The current initially pushed us toward it, which was a little scary. Once we got past it and out of the current, we paddled back for another view.

  2. Long time supporter, and thought I’d drop a comment.

    Your wordpress site is very sleek – hope you don’t mind me asking what theme you’re using?

    (and don’t mind if I steal it? :P)

    I just launched my site –also built in wordpress like yours– but the theme slows (!) the site down quite a bit.

    In case you have a minute, you can find it by searching for “royal cbd” on Google (would appreciate any feedback) – it’s still in the works.

    Keep up the good work– and hope you all take care of yourself during the coronavirus


    1. Hi – Thanks for the comment. I must say that I don’t know what theme I am using. It is free and part of the Word Press site. You are welcome to use it as it is not mine. Thanks for watching. Best wishes and stay healthy.
