Oct 6th 2007
Finally I made it out on the water, everything has conspired against me these past couple weeks, but I finally found some time and did a short trip on Ashville Bridge Creek. I also realized that the kayak rack had been off of my truck for a month, and nothing good can come of that.
The lotus on the creek are dying out, and all the blooms are gone. They still cover a very large area of the creek from bank to bank, and I am not sure what kind it was, but I did see the tail of a snake moving away as I passed, so be careful if you go here.
After getting through the lotus the creek was as calm and peaceful as usual, no real activity by any wildlife noticeable, just some fish jumping every now and then. There were very few birds, I guess this is the transitional time for them the summer birds have gone, and the winter birds have not arrived yet.
Not much in the flower department either, got a picture of probably the last swamp hibiscus, and a couple of pictures of the small daisy like flowers that usually dont flourish until it gets a bit colder.
Well Sunday is football, but I have Monday off, so I will try and get the kayak out again, on a hopefully longer trip.
