Sea Eagle Sailing

I know many of you will be amazed, but today I got up early and headed to the beach,

and I got a picture of the sunrise.

Yep, there is the sun rising over my head at 10:30 am.  :c)

I enjoyed sitting in my chair watching the sea gulls

while Marti took a stroll down the beach.

This afternoon, we went paddling in our Sea Eagle inflatable kayaks.  Four couples went, including the experienced Howard and Linda, who introduced us not only to fulltime RV life, but kayaking as well.

We all got in the water on the Intracoastal Waterway after carefully checking the tide schedule.  We paddled south with the outgoing tidal current.

Howard and Linda had sharp eyes and pointed out some Ospreys to us.

Here is George and Laurie,

and Mike and Terri.

We enjoyed the scenery, the waterway itself,

as well as the trees, root systems and leaf colors.

Nature is amazing, to see how life regenerates on old, dead tree stumps.

We explored some narrow side channels.

How far into the unknown are we going?

There were some forks on the waterway and we checked Google Earth on Laurie’s Smart Phone to make sure we were heading in the right direction.

It was about a five and a half mile, three hour excursion.  We had a ball.  Too soon it was over, but we had another thing to look forward to.   Pizza!

Not all of us went kayaking, but we all dove in to the pizza.  Another great day at Hunting Beach State Park.

  1. I'm glad to see that at least some of you wear PFDs.

  4. Sunrise - HA! Love it! Looks like a great paddle. My favorite kind is out with the outgoing tide until I can float in with the incoming.

  5. Looks like an enjoyable time. Good going on the PFD program. Kind of stands to reason that the X Coast Guard Dude would be wearing a PFD. Hit your head on a log, and you won't be swimming much. I suck at swimming, so I have one on any time I'm on the water. Period.

  13. I am guessing that the pizza overtook the calories burned on the water trip:)
