Just a four hour tour of Saint Augustine intra-coastal by boat ending at the Matanzas beach area. Rented a pontoon boat from Vilano Beach, captained by Jari Steinborn and first mate Nicole. We cruised the area around old Saint Augustine and headed south to Matanzaz Inlet passing several pods of dolphins and Fort Matanzas.
We ventured to a new location after losing out to bad weather for the full moon paddles. Haw Creek sounded like the place to go with my friend Chris and a newer yakker, Mindy.Tucked away in western Flagler County lies Haw Creek Preserve, a 1,005-acre tract of land bordering Haw Creek for about two miles on its southern boundary.
After a particularly cold period thanks to a polar vortex; good weather for the weekend made us want to explore the Silver River. We felt the warm snap would bring out the wildlife and hopefully the much storied monkeys of Silver River.
So my brother Gregg and I set of to Ray's Wayside to paddle to the head spring and back. Rain and drizzle all the way from St.
We closed out the year with the great winter day paddle from Durbin to Palmetto Leaves Park. My brother Greg and friend Dennis put in off of racetrack road and noodled around the area south of Racetrack as far as we could get. Then we headed out through the trail and stopped at Clark'sn and had lunch on the dock and then continued on to St Augustine Road.
