    I really enjoyed this paddle. Very nice spot with easily marked trails. Great weather, good people and enough water. Nice outing to Tarpon Pointe for food and beverages afterwards cemented the day.

      With all this talk re: tides, is there going to be difficulty with paddle or are we all set?
