Billy's Creek (without a garbage bag)
- Sat 7/31/10 Oscar and I met at 7:30am at Riverside Park (Caloosahatchee & Seaboard St ) for a recreational paddle up Billy's Creek, I pointed out Shady Oaks Park (where I've launched for cleanups). We paddled and paddled further than I've ever gone before because for the first time I wasn't paddling to clean up the Creek (although it could use a cleanup) and the water level was high. We paddled and paddled until dense foliage stopped us. Neither of us had a gps so I couldn't pinpoint where we stopped but looked at a map today, we paddled right by Billy Bowleg Park and Billy Creek Park Preserve a new Lee county facility which doesn't have any official kayak launch yet...

The fibers twine around each other and are red near the water. Neither of us had a camera so I took the best pictures I could from my cell.
