Great Hudson River Paddle events, & Thimbles
Great Hudson River Paddle events run throughout July...here is their new site & events link:
some of the free events include a paddle around Bannerman's Castle, kayak demos at Beacon, paddle along the Hudson Highlands, Friday skills sessions, and don't forget our "Pirates of Esopus" kayak Scavenger Hunt at Freer Beach on Saturday 7/16/11. Marion, Connie & I had lots of fun mapping out the Scavenger Hunt and think you will enjoy picking up tokens associated with Esopus, and discovering the Sights around Esopus Bay.
One of my most enjoyable paddles last year was around the Thimble Islands...so I've forwarded a meet-up going there. happy 4th, Diane
