Kayak: Hobie Outback
Route: Meander around Pelican Bay and out to Sand Island and back.
Weather: Mostly Sunny, 65-75 degrees, winds less than 10 mph. Nice conditions!
|2) Common spiderwort, also known as Widow’s Tears. The petals on this flower do not drop off but turn into a jellylike liquid, hence the name widow's tears.|
|4) As these pelicans went soaring by, they suddenly put on the brakes having apparently seen a school of fish, but then changed their mind and proceeded to fly off again.|
|5) Herons with lovely red hair were playing a game of chase.|
|7) As the sun was lowering on the horizon, #3 Buoy seemed to sparkle brighter than normal.|
|8) Every sunset above ground is a good sunset.|
|9) After the sun went beneath the horizon, the colors began to slowly appear. The reflection on the water constantly changed color from yellow to orange to shades of red. The colorful wave action was mesmerizing.|
|10) Dauphin Island is one of my favorite places to launch a kayak from. Sadly, there was a lot of noise pollution coming from nearby Oil Rigs today. You can always put on a set of headphones and listen to an MP3 player or radio.|
