Canoeing the Lost River – Stuart, FL

     With all the waterways, a trip to Stuart wouldn't be complete without a water excursion, so we rented a canoe at South River Outfitter's on Lost Road.   Lost River is a glimpse into Old Florida, with plants and wildlife.   An alligator crossed our path!   We saw lots of fish, including what looked like baby flounder floating on the surface!  A turtle and birds were part of the sights.  Lost river is only four miles long, so it is manageable even for novices.  The river is beautiful!  It was fun!  Allow at least 90 minutes.  For $36, you can stay out for ½ day.   Take plenty of water and use sunscreen.   www.southriveroutfitters.com
