Kayaking Queen

May 11th, 2009 by flanews

A New Jersey mom is in Florida paddling to a change government policy.

Margo Pellegrino took a break from her 1,200 mile kayaking trip to meet with Governor Charlie Crist this afternoon. Pellegrino is kayaking from Fort Pierce to New Orleans to rally support for a clean oceans act. Pellegrino said on her trip she has seen the good the bad and the ugly.

Ive seen lots of schools of fish, little fish, and dolphins and sea turtles. And then Ive seen some not so pretty aspects, well, pollution, said Pellegrino.

Pellegrino is collecting messages in bottles at stops along the way. She plans to give the letters to lawmakers.
