The KCC Adventure Team Tours the St. John’s River

Over Thanksgiving, we took a trip down to Welaka, Florida to visit my husband’s parents. A road trip isn’t a road trip without the KCC Adventure Team, so of course we took some kitties along. We decided to bring Kylo Ren and Caster this time around.

Kylo has visited Welaka before, but this was Caster’s first time down. They both had a blast! Caster enjoyed having a new home to explore, and he took to the boat outings like the natural adventure cat that he is! I have been really impressed with Caster and his adventuring skills. He has only been on a couple of outings, but you would never know it. He really is a natural.

Over the four days that we were in Welaka, we went out on the boat twice. The weather was perfect for it – 75 degrees and sunny, not a cloud in the sky. Not only was the weather perfect, we got to see all kinds of awesome sights – 1 manatee, 3 bald eagles, 20+ alligators, and tons of turtles! Kylo really enjoyed the manatee. His tail was a-swishing as he watched the manatee swim underneath our boat. He also got to see my father-in-law catch a fish! It was quite an exciting day.

Caster and Kylo’s favorite part about boat rides though is the wind in their fur and all the interesting smells brought along with it.

Check out some of the highlights of our trip:

Mud Springs – a pit stop we took along our boat ride. There are natural springs all over the St. John’s River. The manatees hang out around the springs during the winter because the water is warmer.

    Mom and all of us absolutely loved these photos and the video. So happy you got to get photos of the alligator and manatee. Loved seeing those two little butts next to each other. Maybe I can train Sawyer to be an adventure cat when he gets well (which he is well on the way to doing) and a bit older. I need to get a much smaller harness than the ones we have. Astrid is sending her dearest husband a billion, million, trillion kisses 💋, oodles of cuddles and all her love. Love to all of you as well.

    This was just fabulous!! What a joy it was to see how relaxed Caster and Kylo were on that boat! And so engrossed! I love the rear view of them and Caster’s head just taking everything in! This was just fabulous! Thanks so much for sharing, it made my day!

    Sure looks like a SUPER FUN adventure! It’s great that the cats enjoy a “new view” out on the water.

    Hugs, Teddy

    Great photos, the kitties look like they are having fun. I would be paranoid of an alligator jumping up and stealing a kitty though- I have seen too many SyFy Saturday movies. 🙂
