|Start of a sunny day in the Florida Keys - Key Largo Angler's Club|
Left the good folks at Key Largo Anglers Club with low morning sun lighting up their marina.

Paddled across several sounds, with the common navigation challenge down here of finding the little creeks in the mangrove covered shores to cut through into the next sound. Good fun. Now paddling in Everglades National Park.
Arrived in Blackwater Sound to see it full of all sorts of crafts enjoying the water. Landed at Florida Bay Outfitters. They have a "trail register", where folks doing long trips sign in with their thoughts. No entries since 2013. Amazingly, I knew some of the folks who had signed in earlier!
