|2) The breakdown irritated me so much that for a minute I thought I was seeing double.|
|3) Here is another alligator absorbing the sun’s warmth.|
|4) A red eye’d coot keeping a watchful eye out on passing kayaks.|
|5) Not only did the coot ignore me, they were paying no attention to the nearby danger.|
|6) There were eyes watching my every movement while up in the Bay Grass area.|
|7) There was about a 30 minute lull in wind as it was changing directions from out of the north to the south. This allowed the waters to slick off. I love kayaking on slick waters.|
|8) Thousands of people cross the Mobile Delta every day on Interstate 10 who probably don’t have a clue what lurks in the waters below them.|
|9) A white ibis in search of crabs.|
|10) Trip Track. Despite the letdown of another kayak breakdown this turned out to be a very gator abundant trip. Those type trips always add to the excitement.|
