I wanted to do a quick paddle before the weather would change and use some gear because of an upcoming multi day paddle on the Withlacoochee River with Paddle Florida.
I went through the hole in the mangrove across from my house and headed to Gulf City and Little Cockroach Bay.
I got into Little Cockroach Bay and it could be the Everglades or the Keys.
I am so enamoured with the pelicans.
I was trying to decide which way to go Cockroach Bay or out to Tampa Bay as I paddled. A few hundred yards from Tampa Bay, I look over at St. Pete and it’s grey and the wind picks up. I realized when I heard the thunder it was time to come home.
More paddling later. Peace out. Tres dog
