The Tensaw River is running a bit high this week. Consequently, the current can be strong. Waterways connected to the Tensaw are up. Byrnes Lake on Saturday April 14 was high enough to cover the wooden pier. A handful of kayakers were out enjoying a mildly warm day on Byrnes Lake. The various walking paths into the trees are now paddle paths. Deep access is possible over and behind the beaver dam.
Another good paddle to avoid the wind is the put in on county road 10 at the Bon Secour River. The business there is the Captain's Galley Restaurant (outstandingly good pizza). The put-in is a cement ramp, and the launch fee is $3. At the put-in the river has a double bend with some islands added as a bonus. Mallard ducks keep us company this time of year. The paddle up river goes into deep woods with well established homes set back from the river. The water is clear and cool. Quite a scenic view.
