Upper Chipola River Kayak / Canoe Adventure

Upper Chipola River Kayak / Canoe Adventure

We explore the Upper Chipola River, starting at Bellamy Bridge. The bridge attracts folks day and night. They hop ego catch glimpse of Elizabeth Bellamy’s ghost. Local historian Dale Cox shares her tragic story of love with us. Then, we head out on the water for a kayak/ canoe trip that was haunted in its own right. Lightning storms and fallen trees let us explore the floodplain forest.

Rob Diaz de Villegas is a senior producer for television at WFSU Public Media, covering outdoors and ecology. After years of producing the music program OutLoud, Rob found himself in a salt marsh with a camera, and found a new professional calling as well. That project, the National Science Foundation funded "In the Grass, On the Reef," spawned the award-winning WFSU Ecology Blog. Now in its tenth year, the Ecology Blog recently wrapped its most ambitious endeavor, the EcoCitizen Project.

Rob is married with two young sons, who make a pretty fantastic adventure squad.
