Elevation: Sea Level
States (1): Florida
Along the Way
It’s leaving time. Off on leg one of the one stop hop to the Florida Key.
Minnesota white pelican RV parks
Little Shark River
The is more diversity in the trees here at Little Shark River that there was at Everglade City. The mangroves have not completely cannibalized this area like they have near Everglade City. Neither Dale or I trusted The Mooch’s motor so we decide not to take the dinghy out 🙁
Total tranquility except for the ongoing bickering amongst the avians.
Out here in the middle of no where, off the grid, we were on full alert all night for the skunk ape. The skunk ape is Florida’s Bigfoot. It is named for its appearance and unpleasant odor. The skunk ape has been a part of Florida folklore since the settler period. Seminole myth speaks of a similar foul-smelling, physically powerful, and secretive creature called Esti Capcaki, a name which roughly translates as “cannibal giant”.
