We decided to paddle the Banana River out of Cocoa Beach.  We put in at the public boat ramp in Ramp Road Park.  We have paddled here before and we saw some wildlife so we hoped for a repeat performance.

We saw some Manatees, a few Bottle-nosed Dolphins and some birds.

All in all a beautiful day for paddle.
