Walk at Yates Mill, then kayak at Lake Wheeler

We'll walk on the trails at Yates Mill for about 45 minutes, then hop in our cars and drive about 2  miles down Lake Wheeler Road to Lake Wheeler.  There we'll rent canoes or kayaks (singles or doubles)  for $5 per hour and take them out on the lake.  The lake is beautiful and calm---great for beginners---and has lots of waterfowl including great blue herons, egrets and if you're lucky, a bald eagle.  Wear water shoes and quick dry pants.  If you take out a kayak, you will get quite wet.  Wear sunscreen and bring water.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
