PADDLE TO JACKSONVILLE ZOO

Sat, 9/21, 10:00 am, PADDLE TO JACKSONVILLE ZOO:  We will meet at Maxwell's Boat Ramp, located under I-95 and paddle to the zoo. Once we secure our kayaks to the floating dock, we will enter the zoo and enjoy the animals.  There is no admission to the zoo when you enter from dockside.  You have an option of bringing a lunch or buying lunch at the snack bar.  When all is seen and fed, we will paddle back to I-95 around 2 pm.

The boat ramp is: Burt Maxwell Boat Ramp, 500 Maxwell Rd., Jacksonville, FL  32218

      The okapi is a rare and wondrous animal once thought to be mythical.

      I find it wondrous indeed. .to think there are probably so many more animals I have never seen...my grandson's where also amazed by it. My 11 yr old now wants to kayak to the zoo to see it....I think I have made a yaker out of him.

    Thanks Sue for putting together such a nice day at the zoo. Plus we all got in a bit of arm exercise, and just being together and on the water made it all good! Thanks!

    Sue, great day, I'm ready to do it again when it cools down a little. It is a paddle and day that could be enjoyed once a week or month. Next time, I won't get lost. Hope Steve will post some of the paddle pictures. After Steinhatchee, I probably will not be taking many shots on the water. Thanks for being you and leading this event.
