Wekiwa Springs kayaking and yoga journey

While in Orlando, visiting my sister, we took a trip out to Wekiwa Springs State Park. This naturally included a kayaking trip along the Wekiva River and multiple opportunities for being a yogi. 

You can swim in the main freshwater spring at Wekiwa; it's around 72 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. There were several people swimming while we were there, including two girls who were having an enviable amount of fun. We were satisfied with dipping our toes into the cool water and enjoying a bit of people watching.

We rented a tandem kayak and learned the true meaning of teamwork! It was a lot of fun. We saw a few alligators and a bunch of water birds, and took our time to enjoy the sights and sounds of the river wildlife.

 There were a lot of little channels to explore along the river; we took full advantage of these, often climbing out of the kayak to switch places or climb on things.

There are many springs and rivers to explore in the Orlando area; if you ever get tired of the amusement parks in the area, then try packing a lunch and visiting one of the springs -- or all of them!
