Lake Stubblefield, the pictures...

And in the morning light everything glowed...

One does not play in the water here.
GatorBurrows
There are actually three gator burrows in this picture, but two are hidden behind roots. The one in the center is only about 18" across, the rest were bigger...

Biggest spider I've ever seen.

But can you see it? Look to the right of the top of the plant. This beast was 5 1/2 inches from front foot to rear foot! I only discovered it when I reached out to push the canoe around the big stump.

Lunch stop.

Stumped!

It's handy to have a bowman who can walk on water.

Done for the day.
Launch
Just another day in the life of Misseswether's Honda Pilot.

Miniwether wants to be just like daddy.
Vested
She kind of looks like a turtle...

I didn't take any pictures of thr featureless swamp south of the launch site because, well, it was featureless...

Adventure! Excitement! Exploration!

I'm heading out to Stubblefied today for the first time, with my kayak. Thanks for the heads up on gators and spiders! Can't wait! I'd rather meet them, than a pistol-packing camper...
