As most of you know there are two new chickies in FL Bay I have seen pictures and they look good. One is located at Umbrella Key near Garfield Bite the other is near Johnson Key. Along with Rabbit key they form a nice muti day triangle for a kayak trip. I undrstand the pelicans have already taken up residence and are leaviing their deposites on them. Also I found out why they are so high, I believe six feet off the water. They build them high to minimize the shadow on the bottom so the sea grass will not be affected. So for the near future getting your gear in and out of the kayak will be challenging. I.m not sure if there is an acceptable compromise but I would guess that for the near term we will have to adapt and endure.
