Around the Bay - Tull Bay




I had originally planned on taking a trip out to Lake Drummond today, the weather looked right but it did not feel right. So I decided to take a trip I have been looking at for a while.

Tull Bay North Carolina, is a small bay at the end of the Northwest River, Farmland to the South and forrest and marsh to the North, and a large island that dominates the North side of the bay.

I launched from the Tull Bay Marina, a nice little facility a couple of hundred yards off of the bay. My initial plan was a trip around the island, and maybe checking out a few of the creeks on the North side, but as I was heading out the wind the wind continued to build out of the west, the forecast was 7 to 10 MPH, and it was already getting close to the high end of that. I took the opportunity to check out the interior of the island, as the wind continued to build, blowing the kayak around making it hard to take any pictures, hence the reduced number today.

All in all it was a nice trip.

There are plenty of different opportunities here, and I will be back.
