First Paddle in the New Kayak I had a message from Ed last night, asking if I wanted to join the boys in a kayak trip up Lofton Creek in Yulee, FL. Because I have my new-to-me kayak, I said yes quickly. I got up early this morning to make sure I had everything prepared for the trip. Then got the Kayak out of the office garage, drove over to Ed's to meet him and Bud for the 30 mile drive to the boat ramp. Once in the water, I could see that my boat, a Eddyline Equinox 14' kayak, was a good one. It glides so smoothly and tracks straight. It was easy to paddle, had plenty of room, a comfortable seat and simply felt right. It was a humid Florida morning, but the creek was narrow with plenty of trees for shade. The water was calm and relaxed. What a great way to spend the morning. I am looking forward to many paddles with these guys in the future. Bill Heading out from the boat ramp. Ed paddling with a tree overhead. Florida creeks are short and get quite narrow as you paddle upstream. Charlie in a narrow spot. Heading back to the boat ramp. It was an almost seven mile paddle.
