The next time I'm in a canoe, I'll try using my back more. Thanks, Desert Dancer.

Once we took our rowboat on a creek in Suwannee River State Park. (The river itself looked too big and powerful.) For a long time we followed a beaver downstream. It seemed to have no idea we were there, then suddenly it cottoned to us and disappeared.

Later we encountered another visitor and told him about it. He said, "What's a beaver?"
About those inactive gators. Once I was on a viewing platform in the Everglades in January. I said that alligators don't feed in winter, and a man turned to me and said, "I saw one eat a turtle last week." I believe him.
