I went kayaking yesterday at Weedon Island. My first time there . . it's quite beautiful and I will have to go again, but this time at high tide. I didn't take the canoe trail, as the water level was too low. It was also the first time I drove that far and that fast with the kayak. I have a baby pickup (Chevy S10, named Elvis, if you want to know). I put down the gate, and run 2 tie downs through the scupper hole and 2 through the stern handle. Over half the kayak hangs over the back, but it does seem to hold and nobody tailgates me!
There is a grave near the entrance:
Loenzo Dow Ross
Co.B 7th FLA Inf.
As is typical of 19th century writing, it's quite flowery and difficult to wade through, by our standards.
