We (The Johnsons) had a great time yesterday with John. He was so knowledgeable about the area and encouraging with our 13 and 10 year old who were a little apprehensive at first about paddling (mostly because it was freezing and we are "true" Floridians) but John was encouraging and patient and the day was awesome. Looking forward to going back again! Thanks again John!
