First of three days at the Rod and Gun Club
20201007_141205.jpg
in Everglades City with two dear friends and two boats, Clara and The Minnow, a 16' Jon boat with a brand new 25hp Yamaha. Took both boats up the Ferguson river in an attempt to reach Ferguson Bay. The river chokes down to a very narrow creek, that was still in bad shape from hurricane Irma several years ago. Got about 3/4 of the way there before I called it. Coming out with the tide was ridiculous as the steering was impossible at idle speed. Scratched her and me up a bit, and got stung by a scorpion on my thumb.

Tomorrow we are running down to the Chatham river.
