We will meet at the BP gas station in Bonneau at 10:30 and caravan to the put in for this beautiful and unique paddle. Those wishing to meet at the landing may do so at 11:00 by following this map link:
Dennis Pasture encompasses an area on the northeast side of Lake Moultrie about 1.5 miles wide by 4 miles long. The area is shallow, protected from the wind, dotted with small islands and fields of Fragrant Water Lilies and American Lotus that bloom throughout the summer. There are many small patches of Bald Cypress and Tupelo that harbor wild life this time of year. We may see Bald Eagles, River Otters, Osprey, White Tailed Deer, Raccoons, Hawks, numerous species of ducks, and Canada Geese so bring a camera if you have one. We will be paddling from a boat landing in Bonneau Beach around one of those nearby islands to a sandy beach where we will take a break. Total distance 2.5 to 3 miles round trip. The lake water levels are down a little bit so there will be plenty of beach to walk on and explore if you are so inclined.

Warm, quick dry clothing as well as gloves and hats are a must. Although the water is only a few feet deep, it is January. This will be a 2-3 hour paddle with a break. The cost is $25.00 to rent a kayak or no charge with your own boat. Be sure to call 843-568-3222 to reserve your kayak.
