We are loving the Crooked River. So scenic and serene. Plus the flow was with us! We spotted a bald eagle, too many turtles to count, and of course Kingfishers. They actually give us an escort every day on the river. Cool.
Also spotted our first alligator. Probably 5-6 foot long sunning on a log. It slithered in the water as we approached.
Stopped at the Rock Point primitive camp site to stretch our legs. It was nice. Had a pit toilet and large pavilion.
We slowly paddled on and are camping up river.
The mosquitoes and no-see-ums are out again in force. Built a fire to get some smoke in the air. The ThermaCell helps too.
Clear night. An explosion of stars in the sky. So rewarding.
