i want to thank every one for there suppoort on my adventure, i will tell you it was not as easy as i thought,in fact it was very difficult and at times i was scared,it is impossible to do this without boat support which i did but thank god there was a few boaters who supplied me with water on more than one occation.

you cant carry much on the board but what you carry is not enough for a certain distance,i saw more sharks than i ever want to see again and became qiut friendly with an alligator,i saw a lot of animals in and out of the water and it was an awesome experience to see these animals in there natural habitat,it blew me away.i never appreciated the 10000 islands or the everglades but it was a beautiful thing to see and experience.i did get hurt and cut and got rescued,nothing ever goes the way you want it to but i am really glad i did it, so i want to thank the coast guards, marine patrol and all the rangers ,everglades national park rangers who watched over me thank you so much for your kindness,i can say it was one of the most awesome things i ever did,i dont know if this is a record or anything spectacular i just did this for myself and im glad i did it.

BUT I HAVE THE BRAGGING RIGHTS TO SAY I PADDLED FROM NAPLES TO KEY WEST .

 

LOVE ENRIQUE,
