Kayak Hike - Cooter's Pond Landing -- Thu, 7/18/2013

Kayak Hike:  Cooter's Pond, Thu, 7/18/2013, 17:00-19:00CDT
Distance: 2 miles  Rating: 5/5
Difficulty: Easy
Conditions: Hot/Humid.  Wind: Calm  Partly cloudy.  Rain shower came up as we were taking out.  No lightening/thunder.

Enjoyed kayaking with "The Bro" after work.  No fishing today - just paddling & exploring.

Alligator Gar were not as active as last outing, but they did perform some small jumps and rolls for us.  Heron, egret, kingfisher, & sandpipers were busy along the shore. 

Water level was several feet lower than two weeks ago.  In spite of the frequent rains of late, I suppose Alabama Power's pull through the dams keeps the level lower.  Water surface was almost glass-like.  Paddling in this smooth water was a wonderful experience.  One could hear the soft cut of the paddles through the water's surface.  Peaceful and relaxing indeed!

Thankful for the experience and this place.
