In these crazy days, one thing is sure, the gator going by ain't gonna give you COVID19, and you're not going to give it to the blue Heron!

So the time is right to get into your boat, boots or bike and get out into the open! Besides, it's good to stretch and exercise your lungs to get them strong for the potential fight ahead!

Let's enjoy the outdoors, alone or in small groups preferably, before it gets hot. If nothing else, it can help with the sanity and the stircraziness that comes from shutting down our usual routines. 

Get out and let the rest of us know what you did!

For me the idea for this post came during a 10 mile predawn bike ride where i didn't come in contact with a single potential contaminating source!

A quick afternoon visit to Elliott Key on Biscayne Bay, about 19 miles R/T:

The GREY GHOST on the rocks at Elliott Key.

One of the joys of paddling a lightweight performance surfski is the ability to cruise at sustained 5.5 – 6 mph speeds with relatively limited effort.

Freshly mowed group camping site on the ocean side of Elliott Key. This is rather nice, and with prevailing easterly breezes it could be a great camp spot on a cool South Florida winter’s night! 

Arrival at Little Rabbit Key campsite to find it under a foot of water!

Never before have I seen this much water there, it's not king tide, it's all the rain water soaked in and pushed back up with the tide.

This called for Plan B!


Here's one with the Yakmaster ..

Paddling and jonesing for scenics
