Mangrove Island Paddling

In the area of Marco Island there are thousands of mangrove islands, marking the beginning of the Everglade coast which stretches south to the Florida keys. One definitely requires a good map and a compass to avoid getting hopelessly lost. The up side is the abundance of wild life, especially birds, fish and dolphins which one encounters. In the picture we've stopped for lunch, but were soon forced back into our boats as the tide was sweeping in so rapidly we could bearly paddle against it!
