Two Tubing Seniors Had a Ball

Travelling upriver seatbelted on the back of a truck through the Blackwater State Park was exhilerating. Once we set off drifting on our respective tubes downstream on Blackwater River, we discovered a Florida wilderness few are aware exists. The river scenery was splendid. The sugar white sandy beaches/shores were lovely for intermittant stops and a picnic. It was a perfect afternoon in every respect!

Great Time with Kids

We rented the Kayakes. Water is calm. Beaches along the way for rest stops. Great for beginners since it was my first time on a Kayake and my partner was a 5 year old! Myself, my 14 and 5 year old and 59 year old Aunt had an awesome time! Great family adventure.
