Airboat ride with Captain Stu, Homosassa Springs, Fl.

The highlight of our vacation so far was our airboat ride with Captain Stu and his new trainee Ron. The four of us hired the airboat for an hour and a half and had a blast!  We learned about some of the current and past residents on the Homosassa River, learned about the Missosoukee Indians who lived in the area, learned about the fishing industries in the area.  We went to an Indian burial mound, out through some mangroves and sea grass and out to the Gulf of Mexico.  On our trip we saw a stingray,several dolphins and an eagle.  Once again, we had a great time.  Afterwards we went to the Crab house for lunch on the river.
