Coming home early: on the final stretch into head winds!

Sixteen brave souls headed into the Biscayne Bay Aquatic Preserve under the guidance of the Tropical Audubon Society.  Before we were defeated by winds of 20-25 knots, we had some serious fun learning to deal with sea kayaks, foot pedal-controlled rudders and the beautiful mangroves.   Brown Pelicans flew by at almost eye level, but the real thrill was the flockof 27 Black-necked Stilts that stayed with us for a personal air show.
