Manatees, alligators, dolphins, fish, birds, no motorized vessels. What more could a paddler need ? Unique scenery- launch towers at the Cape Canaveral Air Force Station and Cape Kennedy add a Space Age touch.

(Kelly Park) Myself and 4 other intrepid explorers paddled in the Banana River Lagoon from Kelly Park (2550 N Banana River Drive, Merritt Island). We had flat water most of the day, saw many interesting creatures, and paddled 15 miles.

Never trust a so-called "expert" Looking at the "eagle" again, it sure looks like a red tailed hawk

Where have you read that comment before? Probably while proof reading your own reports. I got the comment from one o fthem, or maybe two, or three...Do not know. You have said that a few times.

So, it was a young bald eagle. Thanks for the other info too.
