Five of us went to Prairie Creek on this fine day for my last kayaking adventure with the Carefree Paddlepushers this season. I had Mare's kayak along with mine - both are Hurricanes and 11.5 feet long, but hers is red. We didn't see any alligators but we did see turtles! The spider lilies were fantastic! Ice cream in Punta Gorda afterwards was quite the treat!
