Full Snow Moon
Kayak St Augustine Tour
This paddle has been canceled
due to weather
Join us for another beautiful full moon paddle on St Augustine's original inlet the Salt Run. Paddle the brilliance of the amber sunset and the pearl glow of the Full Snow Moon as the St Augustine Lighthouse guides our way.
February's full Moon is traditionally called the Full Snow Moon because usually the heaviest snows fall in February.
Hunting becomes very difficult, and so some Native American tribes called this the Hunger Moon.
Other Native American tribes called this Moon the "Shoulder to Shoulder Around the Fire Moon" (Wishram Native Americans), the "No Snow in the Trails Moon" (Zuni Native Americans), and the "Bone Moon" (Cherokee Native Americans). The Bone Moon meant that there was so little food that people gnawed on bones and ate bone marrow soup.
We will launch at 5:30 p.m. at the Lighthouse Park Boat Ramp and paddle down into the Anastasia State Park and return.
