We will meet at Yates Mill County Park and hike a couple of short easy trails (about 45 min. of walking), then get in our cars and drive a couple miles south on Lake Wheeler Road and go to the boat house on Lake Wheeler. From there you can rent canoes or kayaks (singles or doubles) for $5 per hour. Be sure to have your drivers' license. If you bring your own kayak there is a $5 launching fee. If you rent one of their kayaks you will get very wet so bring water shoes and kwik dry pants. There are lots of great blue herons and egrets, sometimes an eagle spotting. Lake Wheeler has a lovely porch to sit and rock and eat your lunch if you'd like to bring it. Bring water and sunscreen. Bugs usually not a problem.
