Breakfast at Owen’s Marina Restaurant

  • November 10, 2012 · 7:30 AM
  • Hunts Neck Rd Public Boat Ramp

 

Come join me for a morning paddle and breakfast at Owen’s Marina Restaurant. The plan is to meet at my house for coffee around 7:30-7:45. At 8:00, once caffeinated, we can all head around the corner to the small public boat ramp located at the end of Hunts Neck Rd. The paddle out of the Poquoson River, through Lloyds Bay and into Whitehouse Cove to the restaurant is approximately 2.7 miles each way. Note that Lloyds Bay can get a little choppy with the right wind. If folks are feeling up to it, we can return the long way around Cow Island (4.75 miles), or explore one of the creeks on our return.

Call me at your convenience, or when you’re on your way to get my house number. I’m on Carroll Dr. which is the last street on the left before the boat ramp. It will be the house with the kayak in the yard! My cell number is [masked].

Like all meet ups, a life jacket (PFD) must be worn. Be sure to have sunglasses as we’ll be paddling straight into the sun for a bit. Conditions are getting cooler, please dress appropriately (it's time for the neoprene). I expect to be back to the ramp no later than 11:30.

Tide is low at 11:55am, water temp about 53 degrees.

    Yes, a GoPro II. I had bought it the day before and only messed around with it for about 45 minutes before attaching it to my boat. Glad you enjoyed the pictures. I set it to take a photo automatically every 30 seconds. I’m looking forward to getting out into some rough water with it, and trying some different mounting locations. The camera came with a Wi-Fi adapter and app that allows me to use my waterproof Casio Droid as a monitor and remote control. I now have the app installed and figured out, pretty cool!
    I down loaded a few pictures from my Fuji that I also took that day. The GoPro’s visible in a few of them.

    Hi Al, I'm digging the photos. What are you using to take these? GoPro?

    Great breakfast! Water clear enough to see the bottom at 5 or 6 feet deep.

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
