    Will we be canoeing a river or the bay?

    I'm a novice canoe-er but think I can hold my own if someone who knows what they're doing needs a partner. I managed to stay afloat whitewater rafting last week so should be okay with a canoe. Knock on wood! Will RSVP for sure closer to the date.

    Dick added an optional lunch at Beanies or Sunshine Cafe following the canoe trip. In case of bad weather on August 10, the lunch can be the alternate event.
    Also, Dolly, the tour guide, wants everyone to be at the dock by 8:45 AM in order to sign the required forms. The tour will start at 9:00 AM.

    Sounds like fun and in my area too. It has been A LONG time since I canoed. How far are we going to be paddling? I will share a canoe with someone who is experienced and doesn't mind sharing with a novice.
