Thought some of you might appreciate the chance to see what it's like out there. These are just a handful of pictures I took on a recent kayaking excursion Oceanside in Islamorada, on a beautiful calm April day in the Keys. Inevitably, while there were a number of wildlife encounters like a line of about 18 pelicans skimming the surface right next to me, terns diving for tiny fish within 20 ft of me, etc, by the time I got out my waterproof camera they were gone.

If anybody knows how to embed the images directly into the text so one can see them full size without having to click on them, please let me know. I hate having to put them as attachments, but they do not have a URL because they're my personal photos.

And yeah, I do feel really lucky to live here.

1. Heading out into turquoise water
2. Heading west toward the Bahamas (but not quite going that far!)
3. Looking down through crystal clear water at seagrass
4. The bridge that seems to sink into the sea
5. Low tide on coastal flats - don't be mistaken, this is no beach... it doesn't even exist a few hours before or after!

Nice pics. Kayaking is something I want to do in retirement.
