It was a beautiful warm day here in central Florida: High temps in the low 80s (F), bright sunshine, and very little wind.
We drove to Silver Springs State Park to see what was happening. The place was jammed. Many were probably here on spring break. The Silver River and its tributaries were crowded with kayakers and paddleboarders.
The gentleman pictured above was doing everything right on this paddleboard except that he's standing up, which I don't recommend, but he's attached his left ankle to the board and he's in complete control; more or less.
This is important for reasons which will become clear tomorrow.
