We waited for the blow to do its thing. Even this morning it was still a little windy. Since we didn't have far to get to Cedar Key we held off until 11 am to make the trip. Moreover, turns out that a north wind will blow the water right out of the river. We saw really low lows during the last 2 days. Research told Russ that the gulf itself was about 2 feet lower than normal. So waiting also let us leave near a higher tide. That plan worked wonderfully.
|See the lower left box? That's depth. As in|
1.8 feet! (It got as low as 1.2)
|Nice day to be out on the water. Albeit nippy.|
|The center of "town", Cedar Key|
Some quick highlights of Crystal River:
|MANATEE! They are such a thing that the town has a number of|
tours to view and dive with them. Apparently, manatee love CR.
|April Fools! The blow came, dropping temps. |
We went from highs of 85 to lows of 42.
