US Independence Proposed - North Bay - Back Bay




It was freaking hot out there today, and I was moving slow. I took my time loading and unloading today, so I think I spent 4 hours getting ready, and about an hour on the water. I had to get on the water today, because I get yelled at when I don't paddle... :-)
I decided on Horn Point, because it is close, and I drove a lot this week, and it was hot.
Not a whole lot to talk about, about the only thing was looking at the how much the grasses had grown since the fire back in March. Yeah that's exciting, I am watching grass grow... :-)
Was planning on going to Merchants Mill Pond in North Carolina tomorrow, but it is going to be to hot again, I think I'll postpone that one for a week or 2. So instead I think I may enjoy the AC and work on the website.

Not so far mister, I was here a couple weeks ago, and could see over the grass, as well as paddle 10 or 20 yards further.

The grasses here have nearly doubled in height

I believe this is a Swamp Hibiscus growing, but I may be wrong.

While some of the burnt area has regrown, there are large areas that seem to have had their growth retarded

Interesting the right West side of the channel is growing lush and while the left East side, has very little growth going on.

Same location as before, just zoomed a little more

And a left turn reveals more brown, but as soon as the shutter went off, something just to my right went running through the reeds. I did not see it, but it sounded big, I am guessing it may have been a deer, or a nutria.
