For my birthday, my husband took me on a kayaking-biking trip to the Withlacoochee River and Trail in central Florida.
Just the name alone would make me want to go. I love those interesting, tongue-twisting Indian names.
Withlacoochee, I'm told, means crooked river.
It's well named because the river did, indeed, twist and turn its way into several Central Florida Towns.
Our first day on the river we were disappointed. It wasn't a beautiful paddle because of too much civilization with housing complexes or cottages along the entire river.
