Sunset / Moonrise Paddle July 2017

This year's sunset moonrise paddle shrunk to only four paddlers at the last minute this year.

The weather was fantastic. The bugs were horrific - little no-see-ums or sand flees or something ate me alive and I'm still scratching 3 days later. Bea was properly prepared with a light, hooded jacket and long pants.

No clouds in the sky to give us dramatic sunset pictures, but that also made it a little easier to paddle back to the take-out under the full moon. It was still very dark though.

The four of us had a nice little picnic but had to keep moving to try to avoid the bugs. It was still a great night out there despite all the swatting. Maybe we should try setting up way out on a sandbar near the water and away from the marsh grass on nights when there is no breeze to keep the bugs down.

Here is a picture album on Facebook.
