We saw the pair of nesting ospreys at their nest, on the Banks Lake Full Flower Moon Paddle.

We all said: “Where’s Shirley?”

There are many more pictures on the WWALS website.

The next full moon is Monday, June 17, 2019, four days before the Summer Solstice. Stay tuned.

    Is your group for kayakers only? I’m getting a new 10′ or 12′ Jon Boat with a quiet trolling motor. I’m having surgery in 6 weeks for a reverse shoulder replacement, so I don’t think I could handle a kayak. I’ve canoed a good bit down the Alapaha and the Withlacoochee. I think you have a neat club and group. I’m a retired public school teacher. Thank you.

      Most people use kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards on our outings. We have had a few jon boats. A trolling motor probably would be no problem; I had one ready to use at that last full moon outing. No outboards, though. Come on along. -jsq
