If my calculations are correct, I have kayaked Rock Springs Run 18 times since my last report in January. I'm not sure why I'm posting another, I should keep the best paddle in Central Florida hush-hush. Guess I want to share the bear(s).

My Report:

My last Rock Springs Run report was about deer. This one is about bears. Florida black bears. Every time I paddle Rock Springs Run I hope to see a bear. My last three visits, September 2, 15, and 20, those hopes were realized. More important, I was able to get photos on the 15th and 20.

As with my last report, I'll let the photos tell the story.
