Let's get together for a day of Paddling and Picnicking

Bring your water toys, friends, energy and your appetite for a leisurely day of paddling and picnicking at Ballard Park, (see map). It's an Easy in and out for Kayaks and Canoes, and tere is a ramp for boats as well. 

I have two Yaks available to share. I'm a novice paddler myself but its very easy to learn and I would be happy to help anyone wanting to give it a go. There is also a place to rent yaks and Paddle Boards for the day across the river as well called (Paddling Paradise. [masked]). Reservations with them are advisble 

I did this paddle the weekend before Labor Day with friends and was incredibly blessed to see a pod of dolphins passing by at the mouth of Indian River Lagoon. Manatees are also in area. 

There will be sloppy Joes, Hot Dogs, chips, watermelon and Lemonade for lunch but your welcome to bring somehing else to grill if you prefer and your choice for a drink. 

Sun screen is Highly advisable and if you have camp chairs they would be a good thing as well. 

If you do plan to come please RSVP with number of guests so I can make sure to have enough food. 

Looking forward to meeting new Christians with an interest in paddling, and or people just looking for a fun day out to picnic and fellowship.

    As host I enjoyed fellowshipping with everyone that came. I was also very blessed to meet 3 new people who didnt RSVP because were uncertain if they could make it. My goal for the meeup was to find more Christians with an interest in kayaking to get together for future paddles. The Lord blessed us with beautiful weather and another dolphin appearance.

    Looks like the weather will be beautiful tomorrow so a good day to get out and paddle and picnic. If not into paddling come for the picnic and fellowship and maybe a game. Lunch will be around noon. Bring a friend or family member.

    They are welcome to come as well Adrienne. I met an Adrienne yesterday at Terris who sails. Are you one in the same?

    I've decided to just have Sloppy Joes and Hot Dogs since Terri was generous enough to share an abundance of buns left over from her BBQ yesterday.

    Unless you want something else other then that, there's no need to bring anything for the grill. Also no side dishes. We will just keep it simple with chips dip salsa etc. Just bring whatever you want to drink.

    It would be a good idea to bring sunscreen and your camp/beach/lawn chairs. If you have any questions please don't hesitate to ask.

    Thanks for your interest Cyndie

    I'm a maybe now. My daughter and son-in-law are coming home that weekend. It depends on their plans. I don't want to be gone if they are planning that time to be with me.

    I hope you will bring Meagan and kayak with her Noneen. I totally enjoyed our paddle last Sat, even the challenge of getting it together and finally into the water. The pod of Dolphins going by just yards away from us at the mouth of the lagoon was just a confirmation from our Father that we were in the right place at the right time!

    Looking forward to meeting you Adrienne, maybe today at Ballard. I'm kayaking with a friend this morning at Ballard and we may come back later on weather permitting!
