We had some beautiful weather this weekend and decided to take the boat out and goto Silver Glen. we put in, in Deland and took the St Johns upto Lk George. absolutely a nice day to be on the water and my wife actually drove for a change... ;)Silver Glen was amazing, 1st time heading out there and the water was about 68-70 degrees. as we were headed down the canal we saw an 8ft gater just sunning himself on the bank. he was HUGE! it's weekends like this that make it hard to head to work on Monday

Great post! Especially since I'm sitting here wanting the lake to freeze over enough to let me get out there for some ice fishing.

Thanks.

that is one thing I've always wanted to do was go ice fishing. I'm born and raised Floridian and have only been in the snow about 5x's in my life time so far. I'm not sure how long i'd survive but have always wanted to do go ice fishing.. :D

Those waters are awesome... thanks for the touch of summer... its freezing here in the PNW, our typical one week of freezing temps then on to mid 40's-low 50's the rest of winter with an occasional low of ~32 at night.

Is it just me or when you click to see the pictures, does the video box stay in front of all of them blocking the view? They look like beautiful shots (at least the portion I could see).

I use Pale Moon which is a lite version of Firefox and Ad Blocker add on and see no pop up ads on any sites. Sometimes I get a banner inside the youtube vid but that is easily removed with a click... Chrome and PM are great browsers...

40 plus degrees and raining, on top of the base of packed snow and ice on the roads.
Seriously fun driving time.

I think I am ready to retire to warmer climes

I have those.

Flip Flops to wear in the snow to get to the hot tub (keeps the toes from freezing into tater toes)

Plenty of shorts.

Hmmmm, I don't look like a male model in them though....

Doug - I think that is going to be one of our new favorite hang outs. though we are relatively new boaters I'm not sure how well I'll do getting in and out when the place is stacked with boats.

Peggy - we have a spare room if you ever just want to get out of the cold!!!! :D:D:D
