Launch from Lotus Garden Park and head south into North Bay. We can turn south and thread our way between the islands and mainland entering Shipps Bay. Then paddle over to the eastern side of the National Wildlife Refuge and turn north to Little Island Park for a break. After that cross the bay back to Ashville Bridge Creek and Lotus Garden Park. Total mileage should be about 12 miles. If your boat is less than14 ft. you may have a problem keeping up with the longer boats but all are welcome (SUP’s, canoes, kayaks) Bring snacks and as always, dress for the water temp and PFD’s are required. Long range wx forecast calls for 55 to 60 degrees and a 0 to 15% chance of precip. I can be reached at[masked]-1137.
