One man's rush to jump on the kayaking bandwagon

Morning Outing

This morning's trip was an example of why maps are important. I got lost. Not too lost, but enough to be irritating. To make it worse, had I know who close I was to there I wanted to be, I would not have turned around when I did.
I wanted to paddle over to Masonborro island and go for a walk. I thought the sand bar was on the intercoastal side, but it obviously wasn't. Had I had a map, I would have know that I was fairly close to the cut-through. Instead, I turned around and headed back up the intercoastal against the current.
While it didn't go as planned, I still had a great time. Luckily I didn't have anyone else with me to share in my lack of poor planning.
