Have you all made that resolution that you're really going to keep? Good luck to you, we took a pass on that.
We had a great holiday season being able to enjoy it with Mandi, Pat, and two of the grandsons. The boys and I got in a little kayaking and fishing. The river was very turbulent and dirty from the recent rains and made the fishing just casting practice, oh well still a good time.

The weather looked like it would hold up so off we went. Seems everyone else decided to do the same. The river was packed with kayaks, paddle boarders, and other outfitters. This seemed to aggravate the manatees as they were very scarce in the springs they normally use. We did see a few but most times the water was just to stirred up and murky to see clearly.
Sunday was the boys last day here and we got together to enjoy a great Packer victory over the Lions. We finished out the night with a bonfire. The boys then got up Monday and drove sixteen hours back to Wisconsin. We were happy the roads were clear for them as you just never know at this time of year.
The park has been busy, with most of the sites and cabins full during the holidays. They had to close the boat launch due to high water. It is amazing to see how fast the river level comes up after the rain.
