Trip Description:  We will paddle downstream to Clear Lake Park where we can get out on a floating dock.  There are bathrooms and picnic tables, so we can take a break and eat snacks/lunch and then return to the put-in.  If the wind is too much, we will paddle upstream to Ref Bluff Road and return to the put-in (no breaks in this direction).

After returning to the put-in, an optional paddle in the opposite direction is possible.

This is a level 1-2 paddle

Be sure to bring plenty of water, sunscreen, insect repellent, and snack if desired (or lunch if you choose), and of course your PFD.


Directions: 
Click the Map quest link for map.  From Houston take I-45 south toward Galveston, exit on to Bay Area Blvd, take a left and travel 5.6 miles east to Bay Area Park. 

Lat - lon of the put-in is  29° 35.727'N,  95° 5.382'W

 
Plan to arrive in the Park by 0930 so we can be on the water by 1000.


Hazards:
Stumps, alligators, heat, dehydration, snakes, mosquitoes, wasps, thunderstorms, alien life forms . . . .
