Flash Paddle: The Blessing of the Fleet in Bayou La Batre
Rob Nykvist writes us:


Bayou La Batre Blessing of the Fleet will be held May 2nd (this coming weekend). The boat parade takes place sometime after the land parade (3:00 pm). Bayou La Batre waters will be restricted from 2:00 pm to 7:00 pm on Sunday to vessels in the regatta.

I'm going down to the Bayou La Batre public launch site on Sunday morning for a 2-3 hour slow paddle in the Bayou to get an up-close look at some of the shrimp boats and other vessels. I'll be launching at 8:00 am in Bayou La Batre.

Not familar with the location of the launch site? Meet me at the Tillman's Corner Wal-mart parking lot at 7:15 am Sunday Morning.
