Rode Sunday.

North cove to Billy Goat had a few dry patches but mostly moist. Didn't go to BS. Couple more dry spots before the road crossing and not a drop of water from that dike to Hole In The Wall.

We rode all over in there looking :thumbleft: , even the flag ponds were dried up.

With the rain coming I doubt it matters. Should be real wet by tomorrow!

As is usual: I didn't see 1 CM boat once we got more than 1/2 mile from the nearest water!

I was at Westgate this weekend to check on my RV. I couldn't believe how high the water is. Really can't open the gates any wider on 60 lest they bury RR. Docks for the waterfront RVs were under 4 feet of water. The walkways to the floating docks at the marina were about a 30 degree incline. Driving across the bridge on 60 and looking south down the Kissimmee River was amazing; everything is water. It's going to be a long time before we see water change any great degree. There's no place to send the water anymore. Everything is bursting at the seams.

That was some GOOD food!!

We were in on two boat loads and somehow missed everyone else. I swear at one time we were wondering if we were the only boat out there. We just was always on opposite ends of the lake. We passed you down on the south end and when we got back to dump our second load we were shocked at how full the dumpster was.

The prettiest lake in Florida just got a little facelift thanks to a BUNCH of folks who cared.
