We'll meet at 9:30 at Yates Mill Park, take a hike of about 45 min., then head on to Lake Wheeler, just down the road at 6404 Lake Wheeler Road. There we can rent canoes or kayaks (singles or doubles both rent for $5 per hour.) You must leave a picture ID at the rental desk and pay for the first hour. If you stay out longer you just pay the extra when you return. It is a very peaceful lake with lots of water birds (egrets and herons as well as ducks and geese.) Wear sunscreen, bring water. Water shoes and quick dry pants are advised---you will get wet if you kayak, not so much for a canoe. Lake Wheeler has a lovely place to sit and eat lunch overlooking the lake if you so desire.
