The Ocklawaha River

During the summer of 2004 the silent otters paddled the Ocklawaha river from the Silver river, all the way to the St Johns river . We paddled the close to 60 miles in ten to fifteen mile increments every other weekend. These pictures are from the last section from SR 19 to the St Johns

Almost to the end.

Paddling back to SR 19 we detoured thru bear creek

A very small example of the reptiles found in bear creek.We saw many more much larger gators but the tight quarters required more manuvering than we could do and take pictures also.
