“My favorite spot for kayaking, but canoes are an option, as well. Twelve bucks for a single kayak (double-seaters are there, as well) for the day. You'll see egrets and hawks. We usually take a picnic and pull up next to each other near the shore to dine in the shade. Very relaxing and very pretty. ”
