Hillsborough River by Canoe


Sunday last, I took my nephew Mikey on a 4 hour canoe trip down the Hillsborough River. We put in at Sargeant park, and detoured up Flint creek to find some alligators.


Having found some fat ones of up to about 12 feet long, we used our light weight bent back paddles to pass the calm tree-lined shores, and found a relaxing spot to enjoy our packed lunch, before finally beaching our trusty craft at Trout Creek Park.


Kept my camera gear (Nikon D600, N 28-70 2.8, N 70-200,2.8 and Tamron 10-24mm) in a Pelican Case to avoid mishap though I have not fallen out of my canoe in very many years.



A spectacular day, comfortably warm, with easy paddling on great water made for a very enjoyable time.
