Just a Reminder about the November Pontoon Putts on the St. Johns River

Newsletter 131

There is still limited space available for the 4 or 5 day tour, November 16th check in, checking out on either 20th or 21st depending on whether you chose a four day or five day visit.  I still have lodging available for the four-day tour on November 26th checking out the morning of the 30th.  I am leaving on Saturday, August 24th, for Kenya Africa with my tour group, returning September 11th.  However, the office will be covered 90% of the time should you need information & wish sign up details.  A check of $500.00, which would be applied to your balance, is necessary to book your space.

These adventures or ‘Pontoon Putts’ take place  on the beautiful St. Johns River in an area in and around Deland, Florida, which is full of wildlife & beautiful scenics.  The St. Johns River was once the highway for commerce in Central Florida bringing goods to the area by Paddle Wheel boat.  This area is also a major path for migrating birds, and is now a paradise for wildlife.  As one of the few rivers in the world that flows North, several springs and tributaries join in to create estuaries for fish of all kinds attracting Bald Eagles, Osprey, Great Blue Herons, Wood Storks, Limpkins, Anhingas, Egrets, Cormorants, Alligators, Turtles and many other species.

Over the years I’ve been exploring this river, I’ve learned that we can usually cover a lot of territory photographing or just enjoying being out amongst nature’s treasures in about four days.  A typical day is rising early & being ready to ‘pull anchor’ while the wildlife is feeding & the ambient light is soft.  Then we cruise back for a catered lunch, a short siesta, and head out again in the afternoon until early evening.  Lunches & dinners are catered (who has time to shop & cook when the critters are out there?!).  All the rooms have refrigerators (some have full kitchens) and coffee is also always available in the ship’s store, as well as snacks and many other items to help make your visit more comfortable & memorable.  As you can see, all types of cameras & length of lenses work for successful images. Come Join us!!!
