Wild Life Hike John Chesnut Sen Park. This is a Magnificent park with the most and friendliest birds and animals in Pinellas. I have seen as many 30-Gators, 12-Deer & 5-Fawns and 100's of birds and a few snakes! There is a Gator nest about to hatch & moma Gator is always there! There are bath houses and water fountains. All you really need is bug spray on your legs, a sun hat altho half shaded, and a 1 qt/ltr bottle you can refill, and hiking shoes. Binoculars if you have them. Meet @Bath House #1. Go left at 2nd stop sign from entrance, go by boat ramp and park in shade between bath #1 house & shelter #1 in shade. It's a dead end circle, compost pile. I'll have my Silver Sebring w/black top. I also pack & lunch and sit in sheltered shade with a typical cool breeze off lake and read my book. Some people exercise. Amazing pictures from last time with Random Fun Stuff I Want To Do On a Short Notice Club. http://meetu.ps/3lmVSS
2nd group We are doing a bioluminescence seeking paddle. We did it twice earlier this month and it was great. Disclosure it is a bit like fishing, no guarantee they will be in water. We may need to paddle a bit to find them. Worse case you get a night paddle in. We go out near Safety Harbor, not far from Gulf to Bay, launch location to be supplied once you have contacted and paid Sandy Feet. We don't need event crashers. TWO CHOICES BRING YOUR OWN KAYAK OR PADDLEBOARD OR RENT OWN KAYAKS If you are bringing your own kayak it is a $10 guide fee to Sandy feet. Text Mary Jo at sandy feet[masked] your email address so she can send you a credit card invoice. Of course include your name and that you are on Bioluminescent with Random Fun Meetup. The $10 needs to be prepaid, they can't collect cash at the ramp. Don't be a jerk and say you didn't see that in the listing here, do right and text them now. Thank you. We want to do future events with them. RENTAL KAYAKS may be obtained from Sandy Feet, for the 3 hours, singles-$25 doubles-$35 They load boats the day before so please don't be rude to them and try to change after Friday at 8pm. They will refund if inclement weather causes a cancellation. They will supply kayak, paddles, pfd and whistle. You need to call Mary Jo at Sandy Feet and prearrange, call soon, rentals are first come first served[masked].. If you haven't called and paid, they won't be trailering in a boat for you. If it is too far for you just don't RSVP, it gets tedious since we have 3000 members when folks start putting in comments why they are not coming, we will just catch you another time. MUST READ >>>>>This event will fill up, so reserve quickly. So if RENTING please reserve boat with Sandy Feet within 24 hours of your rsvp here or we may move you to "not going". Putting an RSVP here gets it on your meetup calendar but you do NOT have a boat until you contact Mary Jo at Sandy Feet Kayaks. Some folks RSVP on meetup then wait 2 weeks to call Mary Jo and wonder why the day before event all the boats are prereserved by others and they can not attend. Don't be that guy/girl. Be sure to talk to Mary Jo and get a confirmation you are in and they are bringing you a "yak". TERMS OF PARTICIPATION By registering and participating in this meetup, you acknowledge that you have read and agree to the following statement: I understand that the activities herein involve certain dangers and risks which I am prepared to fully assume for myself and all children accompanying me.

In addition, I agree to waive all claims which I, or any member of my family, or my heirs, executors or assigns, may have against this meetup or its agents for damages or injury sustained as the result of participating in the physical activity. Recently a participant got separated and had to be picked up a couple miles from the finish point as they did not stay with the group and made a wrong turn. It is each kayaker's responsibility to have the ability and attentiveness to stay with the group and not go wondering off by themselves. You should have some competence and confidence. We won't go fast, but you do need some ability. • Important to know Please get there 10-15 minutes early to set up, as the paddle will start punctually. Bring food, beverages, bug spray, water shoes. We will keep appropriate social distancing (on the water that is easy in a 10 foot kayak). We are not touching you or your stuff. Sandy Feet disinfects all their equipment after every outing. Total attendance from all meetups will be less than 35.
