Set off about 7:30 am from Rice Creek Landing to Jessamine Bayou and then on to the Indian Mound. It pays to get an early start, early morning tempatures are much lower. Made the hike inland to the mound where we had lunch. Headed home and ran into our first thunder storm on the water. Very nerve racking experience. Punctured both kayaks on the last leg of the journey. This was a long trip for one day. Saw one alligator, a baby that had been sunning himself on the bank and plopped in the water when he heard us coming.
