This is very typical of what happens to any river as it slows and enters the ocean or other large body of water. They widen then form a delta, then they make a snake like course through the delta. We have several rivers here in NC that at the point they become brackish water they form this type of meandering river formation. May have to do with the slowing of the water and the Ocean tides. They usually straighten out again as they near the mouth of the ocean. Very common and yes very beautiful fun to drive your boat or kayak through. Full of wild life. I seldom get to see a birds eye view of them.
