Weekday Paddle / Matlacha, FL / Pine Island Sound

  • Dec 5, 2012 · 12:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

Greetings,

I am doing a teaching artist residency in Cape Coral and I pass Pine Island Road on the way down. I thought I'd make a day of it. ;) and wondered, because I have heard that this is a very good location for paddling and the weather has been grand if a few of you might be able to paddle during the week?

If you are available for a weekday paddle on Wednesday Dec 5th, I would love to have you join me.

Look forward to seeing you at Noon'ish next Wednesday, the 5th.

Directions to Matlacha Park: I-75 south to exit 161, toward Punta Gorda. Merge onto Jones Loop Rd. which becomes Burnt Shore Rd. Turn right onto Pine Island Rd NW. Matlacha Park will be on your left across the street from Gulf Coast Kayak ($10 to launch) - the park across the street is free.

Matlacha, FL is a nice little town to walk around in so bring a change of clothes and money to have a beverage and snack.

    During some light rain, I had an awesome momma manatee and her pup encounter. On the way back to the park I stopped to check the map and two dolphins came over to check me out. Nice hot bowl of chili with Jimmy sealed the day before the journey home.

    Hi Bonnie! This trip sounds cool! (esp the gallery part too)
    Too bad I can't make it Dec. 5, hoping maybe some other time...

    After our paddle, we can change our clothes and head west over the bridge. Apparently there are many galleries to check out and many photographic opportunities, plus lots of good places to eat and reasonably priced.
