Wednesday Evening Paddle

Every Wednesday from May to October we will paddle at lake Nockamixon. We usually paddle until sunset so as the summer goes on we have more time to cover ground or just float along. You will need a PFD, Paddle and whatever watercraft you would like to bring, be it a canoe or kayak or rowboat (no motors).  We usually have a pretty good group of folks, and it's a great way to make lasting friends.

Last year we had a core group of 25 or so paddlers, and we would like that to grow this year. All skill levels are welcome. It is a helpful group and we generally paddle about 5 miles. With lots to see at the lake, bald eagles, osprey, hawks and owls, deer, coyotees, swans and geese there is always something to marvel and photograph. The sunsets on Nockamixon can be spectacular so we hope you join in the fun.

 

We meet at Tohickon Boat Access!

 

See you on the water!

      Thanks Diane. Sorry it took so long to respond. Very busy week! I am going to try it out when I get my board and see if I can keep up for a little while at least. Either way I will still have fun getting out on the water and meeting new people!

    Does anyone paddleboard on Wednesday's?? Or would I get totally lost from the group?

      I don't think anyone would want to discourage you. However I do not know if one could keep up with the group on a paddleboard. It depends on who is leading the kayak paddle. Sometimes our pace is brisk, sometimes very leisurely. Also consider wind conditions etc. I don't paddleboard so I would not know if they move as quickly or not. At least in the case of a fall getting back on would be a lot easier then with a kayak ; )

      Thanks Larry - I will try it out anyway as soon as I get my board. I pick it up next week. I don't mind if I can't keep up the entire time.

    Margaux, I have been trying to get some traction on a paddle board only night. Let me know what night besides Wednesday works!

      Hi Steve...sorry - just saw this post. I just ordered my paddleboard and will be picking it up from REI next week. I am going to try and meetup on the Wednesday evening paddles with my board. I don't really mind if I can't keep up with the group the entire time. It's still fun to meet new people!

    Another beautiful evening with a great group. Steve, it was nice to meet you - thanks for leading. I enjoyed the dinner together after the paddle, and I hope I can still remember a few names the next time we get together! I appreciate the photos (and I'm enjoying the captions too). See you all soon.

    I had a few days of crazy workouts and now feel like a 90 year old woman. I can't move today but if someone is keen to go out this weekend I'm game.
