Bivy Camping from the Cetus LV

I got my new Outdoor Research Highlands Bivy in and was aching to get out and try it so I decided to do a quick overnight considering I had to work the next morning. I packed up my Cetus LV and headed out from the Isles of Capri in Naples, FL to head out to Keewaydin Island, the 1st barrier island of the 10,000 Islands chain.

Heading to Keewaydin Island

Arrival

I left around 4:45 pm with sunset at 5:29 pm. Reached Keewaydin Island, 3.75 miles away, with time to set up the Bivy camp site, which was very fast, and then watch the sunset.

Even in Southern Florida is was feeling frosty as it got down to 46 degrees so I warmed by the fire as the Slickrock Beans cooked and then hit the bivy for the night. Awoken by noisy powerboats partying I left at 2:30am and was awarded by the lunar eclipse to paddle back under. A pleasant night indeed.
