[--We are home now with a lot of catching up to do. Currently, I have added pictures through March 3...

And today, I added titles for each day, saying what we did and offering a web site which acts as a placeholder until I get to adding our pictures and stories. Sigh.--]

Delnor Wiggins State Park

We loaded our Kayaks on the car and headed for Delnor Wiggins State Park is on the ocean in North Naples. We put the boats in on the bay side and paddled around the fringes of the bay. The shore vegetation was mostly mangrove. We soon discovered that easing along with the current as silently as possible we could closely observe the shore birds. Our first outing with the Kayaks proved to be all we could have hoped for.

 This putting Kayaks on and off the car is getting to be a pain... 
 Riding pretty low in the water (keeps me unobtrusive to the wildlife -- riiight) 
 A blue heron (?) 
 The same blue heron (?) 
 Haven't quite gotten my Kayaking balance and camera operating skills in sync, yet 
 Marsha paddling up a cut in the mangrove 
 Turning around after it got too shallow for me 
 Looking back at the bay  
 An ibis 
 Check out those feet 
 Two ibises (good crossword puzzle / scrabble word 
 A blue heron (?)

 Check out how this bird ...

 White heron (?) 

Then it was time for some sun and sand. Each of the five parking areas have easy beach access paths, picnic groves, restrooms and outdoor showers. The sand is almost powdery and feels scrumptious between your toes. We didnít venture into the water as the air temperature was still a bit cool (60ís) but we were content to just sitting there in the sun with sand between our toes while listening to the surf.

 This was from one of the Naples Town Beaches, but where we were was similar
