We decided to stick close to home and paddled from our local launch. It opens into a large cove and goes out to the breakers and bay. It was the perfect day for paddling, warm sun and cool breeze. This is a great place to launch, lots of parking spaces and a nice sandy spot to take the boats out.
The first thing I had to see, was the hawk who lives on one of the islands. He was being very vocal with all the paddlers drifting by her nest.
Rounding the island, we enter another cove that narrows down to a dead end.
At the end, it is filled with reeds, that have grown, sky high. It reminds me of "The Land of the Giants".
There is even a tiny island in the middle of this area. No spots to land though, but would be great for a picnic.
We ended our paddle at the breakers. Here is the entrance to the bay. It was a bit windy and wavy, but I do love to ride the waves.
We stayed here a bit before heading back. We took a swim, watched the wildlife and enjoyed the boats sailing and coming in and out of the harbor.
