Nancy had looked at the tides and determined that low tide was going to be about 2:30 PM. If we put the kayaks in about 12:30PM we should be able to go with the tide for about 2 hours. Then when the tide changed, we could return with the tide back to our launch point at Enterprise road.
However, Nancy was spot on today ;o))
Trish and Dan
The current was really good. If the truth be known,
the six of us spent the first hour or so just drifting along
We enjoyed a little lunch along the way as well.
We reached the turnaround a little before the tides would change,
so we took a little rest on a sandy beach area.
This time of year there is very little wildlife. However, once we made the turn and headed back off the main channel we saw a few more interesting things.
He stayed right on the branch, even as we passed under.
But then somebody smacked a paddle on the water…
Dan and Trish paddled over to get a closer look at this one
As soon as we said the word “snake”…
Trish was quick to lift her paddle and get a little squeamish.
Obviously snakes are not one of her favorite animals!
The weather really cooperated as it hit almost 70 degrees with a slight breeze. The company was great and we shared tons of stories and laughs along the way. We actually spent about 3 ½ hours on the river travelling a bit over 5 miles.
What a fantastic way to spend a mild December afternoon with friends.
We’ll have to do this again!
