17.04.2017 East Bay River & Tom King Bayou (FL, Santa Rosa Co.)

East Bay River is a small blackwater stream that runs parallel to the coast. It has practically no gradient and therefore just flows along very slowly. Its water is so acidic that even R. serrulatum thrives only sparsely. But its banks are full of magnificent specimens of Sarracenia leucophylla. There is also Sarracenia rosea in some places. Lilium iridollae is frequent. After boating up and down the strongly meandering river to just before the Okaloosa County border, we also went out into brackish East Bay. Tom King Bayou, an even smaller blackwater river, flows into it. Its banks are densely developed. Before entering East Bay, it also forms a small bay of its own. Here there is only one undeveloped lot with a natural shore. Directly at the water edge is a huge colony of tall grown R. serrulatum. The plants grow here in sand with an extremely high salt concentration of 11500ppm!
