So we chose to go out on our very own. Barry purchased a hand-held GPS that we hoped would lead us from the mangroves. We purchased a book on Florida kayak websites as well as took off on our initial travel. We launched close to Freeway 41 beyond Palmetto as well as paddled far from the roadway as well as with a bay. Quickly we located a tiny tunnel position in the mangroves that took us right into another smaller physical body of water. I wished I had actually brought some colored yarn to connect on a branch and also Barry messed with the GPS.
When we were ready to leave, Barry reset the GENERAL PRACTITIONER to take us back. Rather of complying with the circuitous course we had taken, it sent us back to our launch site in a straight line via strong mangroves. However the only back was the way we had gone into; via the mangrove passage. We paddled near to the mangroves, hunting for the opening. After a lengthy instead terrifying time and many untrue tunnels, we found the appropriate one, looked at and also realized we still had one more passage to locate before we would be back in open water. Well, I thought to myself. We had plenty of water as well as a minimum of one sandwich left from lunch. That would buy us some time.
