Canoe trip up the Loxahatchee to Trapper Nelson's

Yesterday was March 5th and it was the most beautiful day we've had in a month. Bright sun, very warm and no wind. We decided to take a canoe ride up the Loxahatchee River to one of my favorite spots in the whole world, Trapper Nelson's homestead. I've told the Trapper story so many times, so don't worry I won't go over it AGAIN, but if you haven't heard it you can view the blog post I did a few years ago by searching the archives. But this post has a different theme...

On the river we saw lots of alligators smiling at us as we passed.

Ospreys kept cheering us on as we made our way up the winding river.

No one else is here! There are usually many visitors and tour groups, but for now it is all ours.
