This was a great adventure. As with most of our paddles, we also learned a few things. The weather turned out to be great, but the winds were something to contend with on our way out, making it anything but flat water. Thankfully the tides worked in our favor and helped to equal out the effects of the winds. The trip back was much easier. We also tried Bob's sail idea by rafting together and hauling up a makeshift sail. It worked!

We had some folks turn back as the conditions were too much for their craft. Fortunately they were able to get back, pack up and meet everyone for lunch.

Lunch was fun and so was the establishment. (I was starving and very happy to eat that steak sandwich).

I would like to thank Bob for the location and I hope everyone who attended had a good time. (I am also happy no one had a camera out when I tripped out of my boat when we beached for lunch. I had to pay for my sandwich with a soggy $20 bill).
