Paddling Salt Creek on Memorial Day
We got a late start, but we were blessed with a few hours of unusually cool temperatures. Also, the wind was mild enough and no one took an unexpected swim...except maybe the dog. As usual, the water in the channel was much less wavy than the wider lake water. The trees are brilliantly green, even on an overcast day like today.
It was great fun meeting so many other paddlers and seeing their colorful array of canoes, kayaks and roof-racking techniques.
After about two hours of fairly light paddling and fairly heavy talking, we headed to the Boomerang Diner for burgers and then out to Nuyaka Creek Winery to meet the family and taste the wine.
Thanks for a fun summer trip, I hope to see you all on the water again soon!
