While not on the glass bottom boat, we still took our boat ride around the Wakulla Springs and Wakulla River (referred to as the wildest river in Florida). I apologize for not knowing the names of all these birds but their beauty needs posting.
After the boat ride, Bill and I were able to cycle to St. Marks on the St. Marks Historical Railroad State Trail, a beautiful rails-to-trails and the first one in Florida. It runs from Tallahassee to St. Marks and is on the railbed of the longest operating rail-line in Florida, which ceased operation in 1983 after 146 years.
When we arrived in St. Marks, we continued to cycle around the few blocks of the riverside town. We chose Cooter Stew Cafe for our lunch break, where Bill enjoyed a fish sandwich. When in Florida, eat fish!
After lunch we cycled back to the lodge and I hiked down the Wakulla Springs trail hoping not to run into any gators.
Tomorrow, it’s back to driving the Sag Wagon for the GGJV – but today it was nice to have a break.
