Amazing day out in the Everglades, taking in and admiring the nature! Canoeing on the river with enough time to enjoy everything without feeling rushed, excellent swim in the refreshing water and a tasty afternoon lunch to end the day! Even saw a few kangaroos after lunch and catfish in the water right next to where we were swimming! David and Mick made the day fun and enjoyable!
