Weather had the potential for some scattered thunder storms, so opted for a protected waterway short trip. Speaking of weather, today was in the mid 70's, and 5the wind was less then 10, and swung around from the South to Northeast through the day. We headed down to Munden Point Park, and Oakum creek, which is a nice protected waterway, with some interesting things to see. Took Dave Gabby and Zack, giving Dave a chance to try out my Pungo 120, and Gabby her first solo paddle. We headed up the creek, without a lot to worry about as the water levels were way up, almost to the level of covering the dock. Gabby seemed to handle the boat quite well, just having some problems with keeping the angle of the paddle correct. We made it up as far as we could, many of the small tributaries were loaded up with poison ivy, and we decided not to fight it and pay for it later. Up in the shallow marsh's we saw several large fish (Bass?) feeding in the shallow water, looked like they were chasing hatchling fish. The sky started looking ugly, so we headed back to the dock, and for the record I was first, Gabby was second, and Zack was third (time to pay up Zack). Talk about great timing, as soon as we pulled the boats from the water it started raining...
