Kayaking Views

The group met at Lions Park. The day was sunny and warm for being a late fall day. The water was very calm. The group was made up of Hugh, Roger, Kathy, Tish & Gene, Greg and his daughter, Amy, and Rick. I wish I had Aneta’s memory for names. We paddled down to Willow Bay where we met the personnel of the Camillus Kayak Shop, Kitt, Kathy and Dave.

It was a gorgeous day in Syracuse for the Zegul demo at Willow Bay! Thank-you to everyone who tried out one of the new models and gave us their feedback on each model they tried. We even had a few venture out on Zegul's prototype Stand Up Paddleboard, which received excellent reviews. Rick Muller from Manhattan flew up in the morning, rented a car, paddled the kayaks, and flew home in the early evening, and now he knows which kayak he wants! Watch for Cindy P's photo in Syracuse Women, the holiday edition! Dave Fay was a tremendous help loading and unloading kayaks and trekking them back and forth to the beach area. What a great sendoff for summer!

On the way back to Lions Park we met many boaters out for that last day of summer-like weather. Hugh spotted a turtle on a log. Being within 10 feet of the turtle Hugh shot a few photos though the turtle didn’t pay much attention. Back to the launch we pack up and everyone went home satisfied with the afternoon.
