July 22 Crystal River

 | Published on 7/23/2019
Eight  TAPC members enjoyed a beautiful paddle on the Crystal River near Glen Arbor in the late afternoon.  The water was much higher than I've ever seen but that was a good thing.  We were spared the usual occasional hull scrapings.  The bottom is sand with some gravel here and there.  We saw a deer just standing at water's edge, watching us pass. I saw a green heron.  What really made it enjoyable was that all participants were friendly, courteous, respectful of one another, and helpful.  Thanks to Jackie for organizing.
