Not enough to control all the boaters. Signs are everywhere - "Manatee area" and the law limits speed but guys in speed boats seem bent on impressing themselves with their power.

Here's a huge den which I believed to be a bear den.

I can now see by the tracks in the snow it has been taken over by the coyotes.
