On Google maps it looks like it's off of Bogges lake. Looks like pretty country. Cool pics, as usual. smiling
smiley It must be fun to canoe around where you are. Did you get the kayak paddle yet?

Used the kayak paddle last Saturday and today. Works great!

This is just south of Lettuce Lake, Desoto County.

Very cool on the paddle. Yeah, that's the same spot I saw on maps. The small waterway the "Black Lagoon" is off of is labeled Boggess Lake. Did creature have his dino buddy with him? smiling

Do the manatees come that far up river? You mentioned seeing one today so I guess so. Where we used to live once in a while we'd see seals in the river 9 or 10 miles inland, especially when the salmon are running. They like them salmon. We've seen sea otters up river too. Not river otters, but actual sea otters. At least no sharks. Yet.

Yeah, the manatee was in Boggess lake and I've seen them several miles upstream from here, near Fort Ogden. Seen river otters up that way too. And gators - everywhere, though none today.

Gators would scare me man. I guess you're kind of used to seeing them though.

I'm a little nervous about them because I've been out of the canoe for so long and in the 25 years since I started canoeing their population has increased dramatically. Out in the wild, though, they're pretty timid when you're in the canoe unless there's a momma with babies around which will be happening in another month or two. The dangerous gators are the ones that live near shore where some people are stupid enough to feed them so they lose their fear of humans and begin to associate people with food. I've seen old gators and bold gators but only one old, bold gator and he was living near people, actually not far from where I was today. The bold ones don't live long enough to get very big unless some dumbass is feeding them. That said it's NEVER a good idea to go swimming in fresh water around here, but some people are stupid enough to do that too. Last week some dumbass chipped his golfball into a pond and just had to step into the water to look for it. He got a nasty bite but lived and I bet he and his golf buddies won't do anything like that again. Last year a 90 year old woman lost a leg to one that lived in the canal behind her house when she went down to the water's edge. She lived too but I'd bet that she had been feeding the thing.

There was a stupid woman in Yachats who would feed the bears in her yard.

It is never a good idea to feed any wild animal no matter the species.

Well, I was wrong about the otters, they are river otters judging by the way they swim. Sea otters swim face up on the surface, river otters do the opposite. That's what I get for believing what a coupla yayhoos tell me, huh?

Once you lose your fear of the dark do you ever get it back? Once animals lose their fear of humans I doubt they ever get it back.
