On The Water

Yesterday I took a dip in the swimming hole here at Alexander Springs - it tuns out that the hole is actually called a "Boil" (where the springs water come boiling out) even though it's not a hot spring. Today I started out from that same "boil" for a little kayaking on the Alexander Run - a "run" is what locals call a river whose source is a spring. Got that?

Nice little paddle on crystal clear water with lots of wildlife. I saw fish, birds, turtles, one alligator and two otters. Only two others paddlers during the two hours, so it was also nice and quiet.
