Cruising the St. Johns Aboard the Naiad
Start your new year off right! Spend two hours on the fabulous St. Johns River, surrounded by scenic beauty, fantastic birds and wildlife, and a bit of Florida history. Join me on Saturday, January 14, for a fun afternoon tour, with a brief pause midway for a reading from my latest book. When we return to the marina, I’ll be available to sign books for anyone interested.
Me, with My Son & DiL’s Dog, Happy.
(Sorry. You’ll Have to Settle for Just Me on the Tour.)
This is the tour that inspired my Riverbend series, and while we’ve had to say a sad goodbye to Captain Jeanne Bell (who will live forever in our hearts), Doug Little will share his extensive knowledge of the river’s wildlife and history with you. Doug is a first-rate photographer, and thus, was the inspiration for Gunnar Wolfe in Swamp Ghosts, a fact he will be sure to share with you. 😀
Barred Owls Are Often Seen on the Tour, Up Close and Personal
Breathtakingly Beautiful Purple Gallinules Nest on Portions of the St. Johns
The tour leaves Highbanks Marina, in DeBary Florida, at 1:30PM, but be there earlier. Perhaps 1:00 to 1:15. You don’t want to get left behind.

I hope you folks who are in the area will come along for a great afternoon. It’s a terrific, peaceful way to unwind, accompanied by lots of moments of high interest and/or excitement when something really cool is spotted. Large alligators, baby alligators, birds of all kinds, manatees, deer, and even black bears have been seen while cruising on the Naiad, so mark you calendars now!
Here are a few of the things you might spot!
Not So Big Alligators
Florida Black Bear
Southern Bald Eagle
(Though probably not in breeding plumage this time of year.)

Hope to see you there!
