NO Boys Allowed!
This week I invited my good friends Liz, Denise and Rebecca down for a fun overnight girls paddle-board trip from Eagle Bay to Hanford Bay about 45 minutes south of Buffalo. With all this warm September weather we wanted to get on the water for as long as possible. I picked this paddle because of the beautiful sea cliffs that line the shores of Lake Erie and the easy put in at Eagle bay and take out at my house in Hanford. We used the Pau Hana Surf Supply Endurance Boards and Big EZ Richochetes for the durability and easy rigging system to carry all our gear. And I gave my light weight Kialoa Paddles to the girls to try them out.
We packed everything we needed for the day and night into our Sealline Dry Bags. The paddle was incredible we spotted Eagles, schools of fish and lots of cool coves. We found a nice place to rest and eat some cheese and crackers on the way to camp and even jumped in the 70 degree lake to cool off!
When the sun was beginning to set we looked for a beach to set up camp. We found a great spot and set up our four person Kelty Tent. We enjoyed some rice, beans, avocado, and sweet potato wraps for dinner. But my favorite part of the night was sipping wine with the girls and roasting marshmallows over the fire and making smores! The sunset was beautiful and the company was even better! Can't wait to do it again!
