Tyler wanted to spend some time with us while he was home on leave from the Marines, so we borrowed Rachel’s single kayak and went on a trip up the Weeki Wachee River. We didn’t really plan how far we were going to go, but once we got more than halfway, we said the heck with it, and decided we would go to the top. I wanted to quit a few times (out of shape), but I had made a comment earlier in the day about other people we went with being wimps and not wanting to go all the way, so Trav held me to to my word and we went as far as we could go, which is almost to the springs. It was an 11 mile trip and poor Tyler had sore arms the next day. It was way worth it, though. On the float down, we had the river to ourselves, and we saw lots of fish, turtles, birds, and a small manatee.
