Started the day down at the Gator pond.

Then we went to the opening ceremony's for the International Breast Cancer Dragon Boat Festival.
There's Brenda.

This is a Dragon Boat

They kept saying there was over 4000 pink shirts at the event.

8 country's were here the farthest was Australia I think but not sure.

There is our Jackie carrying the Canadian flag they picked the youngest Girl from each country to carry the flag.

This is Dr Susan Love she has the book out that every Woman with Breast Cancer has read they all love her. She is one of the better public speakers I have ever heard.

This was a memorable day. I wonder in 4 years what country the next one will be in I hope its one I want to see.

Wikee Wachi

Nothing much yesterday I had a migraine all that I saw was this Hawk after the squirrels never did get one.

Today was a better day we went kayaking with Helen and Paul.
here they are

Saw a few turtles

See how clear the water is the river it is all spring fed.

Here is proof that I was really here

Click on this picture and check this out. They almost flipped it on that branch stuck between them.

Paul just taking it easy.

And this is why we came here to see the Manatees

What a thrill one was under our boat and I was sure it was going to flip us.

There was 4 of them in this group.

The one was so close we could touch it.

This was a great day it took a few hours to float down the river. We saw a deer along the bank but was to slow to take a picture. Another couple saw an otter we didn't that would of been great. And Paul saw a Bobcat in the yard last night. It has been fun being here tomorrow we go to Sarasota for the Dragon boat festival.

Another day in Greensboro

Walked around the park a couple of times today.
They have a bunch of these boxcar set up as rental cabins.

Then went for a walk down the road the vines just take over down here
Came to a small lake.
This guy was fishing he had 4 fishing polls going at once.
showing off his catch of Crappy
Brenda and her butterfly's but not a Monarch.
We drove into town for some more popcorn all organic.
You know I am not eating any. Brenda say's its the best.
And we stopped in a restaurant for a piece of Buttermilk pie everyone said it was the best pie in Georgia and I think they are right. Not that I have ever had it before.
