Just west of Sanford...Blackwater Lake is an awesome place to paddle March 9, 2015
Bumping over logs and doing the limbo under the trees is all part of the fun of paddling Blackwater Lake. Coming out of the dark swamp into the sunshine and clear blue skies of the lake, the contrast is jaw dropping. The Cypress Trees are greening up and the Air Plants are in full bloom. As the Spanish Moss was swaying in the breeze the Osprey was calling out from their nest. It's like paddling in a place that time forgot...naturally spectacular!
