Amelia Island's salt marsh is perfect for paddle boarding and kajaking.

I spent a gorgeous morning on, and -whoops- in the water, although I had been warned by the locals that the water would be 'freezing' cold in October. I goofed around. I fell in.

When you're from San Francisco where the Bay is so freakin cold, it will kill you instantaneously Florida marsh water feels more like a lukewarm bathtub. Just sayin.
Mind you, the thought of gators (and sharks?!!) had me back on the board in no time!

The real highlight of this excursion was a tree, all the way on the other side of the water–completely taken over by birds. Paddling towards it, we saw a majestic blue heron and a number of hectic little kingfishers. Once we got to the tree, we saw great egrets, snowy egrets, roseate spoonbills, and even a woodstork.
