8am too early? Can you go around CN that early? If not , name the spot and I'll be there. Just have to work within my time constraints and stay between Ipswich and York.

Thanks,

Paul

Paul,

8am is not too early for me, but we wouldn't be able to get through Fox Creek since low tide is at 7:30am. It's not passable +/- 2 hours around low tide. We could do I would think if we reverse direction and paddle along Cranes first.

"Just a friendly reminder."

Power boaters are runnung this area at full tilt.

Friday is the start of the weekend. Traffic should be high.

There are no "Slow. No wake." signs coming from Ipswich River side.

I was through there at high tide on Wednesday 8-11-06 and

would have been run over in Fox Creek straight away if I had not paddled up on the marsh.

My colorful paddle blade did nothing to get there attention.

I would suggest going through between the 2nd and 3rd hour of the tide. This way there is not enough water for the power boaters.

The marsh grass is very high this time of year.

I was taking a newbie around. She loved it never the less.

One other tid bit.

The swimming area has been increased on the Ipswich River side.

It is marked.

Greenheads are not completely gone. You will encounter some

in Fox Creek for sure. Please make a hardy donation

so that the next time I go through they are full.

Thanks

I think that's Rob's job, since he doesn't seem to mind them;)

Seriously, thanks for the input. Are you up for the paddle? Haven't seen you in a while....
