PADDLING Touring Paddling -- for miles on 07/28/2019 @ 9:30am - 3:00pm -- This is usually a good date for the American Lotus to be in full bloom. We will paddle on Turners Creek in protected coves for the lotus. Then along the west bank of the Sassafras in more open water. There is usually power boat activity in this area which with some wind can generate swells (waves). While we will stay close to shore to help deal with this, longer boats (12 feet or more) are recommended. A skirt is good idea but not necessary. Depending on timing we will eat lunch at the put-in or on one of the sandy beaches on the Sassafras. Bring lunch, water, and sunscreen.
