A DAY ON WEST LAKE IN DANIA WITH SIDE TRIP TO ANNE KOLB NATURE CENTER

A DAY ON WEST LAKE IN DANIA BEACH WITH A STOP AT ANNE KOLB NATURE CENTER WITH A POSSIBLE TRIP UP WHISKEY CREEK TO JOHN U. LLOYD STATE PARK

TRIP RATING - Beginners with some experience / SK1 / about 4 miles, slow speed / Self-rescue capability

DESCRIPTION: Enjoy a day kayaking at West Lake Park with a lunch stop (bring your own lunch) at Anne Kolb Nature Center with a possible side trip up Whiskey Creek into John U. Lloyd State Park.

LAUNCH: We'll launch at 10AM sharp from the boat ramp in West Lake Park (ask the Park attendant at the entrance where the ramp is)

KAYAK RENTALS - Available at the Marina.

DINNER: After our trip, for those who want too will go for a late lunch somewhere.

DIRECTIONS: Sheridan exit off I-95 going east. Cross over Federal Hwy and go to the second stoplight and turn right into West Lake Park. There is a $1.50 park entry fee on weekends but no launch fee.

My cell phone number: [masked] for when you get lost!

WEATHER - It's summer - there will be storms!  If there is any lightning or thunder noticeable we will not launch, and we will wait until 30 minutes have passed after the last flash/rumble prior to launch.  If we are caught out on the water we will seek shelter in the best and most immediate manner.

GEAR - BASICS plus SUN CLOTHING, SELF RESCUE GEAR, lunch, plenty of water, rain jacket towel, trash bag for your trash, and dry bag/dry box for things (like keychain transmitters) that don't play well with salt water. Be sure to bring a towel and a change of clothes to leave in the car for after the trip.

    Daniel: Give yourself a 5 Star rating for good judgement in cancelling the Capri Island run, if the wind and currents here were an index of what the West Coast weather would have been like there, we would have driven there for nothing. Barring the 15-20 knott winds that cropped up here after we got going and the mini white caps on the larger portion of the lake ( I lost a favorite hat because it was too rough to turn around), it was another great day to be on the water. I tip my new hat to you for guiding us through another adventure. Please schedule another Capri Isle trip ( but not on the 14th per Dina Becker) and I'm sure that yuou will have a good turn-out.
