Cross-Florida Barge Canal: The building of the canal, that was supposed to go all the way to the Gulf of Mexico, was stopped, due to environment concerns. We entered into the lock, cruised a while into the canal and then returned to the river. The scenery on the canal bank is quite plain, but we spotted lots of alligators, herons, a wild turkey and other bird life.
