Another beautiful day gave the Teams a chance to check out a kayak launch on the other side of Port Bay. To get to it you take the road to Sinton from Loop 35 in Rockport. When you cross Port Bay and go about 3/4 mile take the road to the right. It is now a paved road almost to the launch point. The ride is a perfectly straight line and we guess a mile and a half.



After a few minutes the pavement ends and a short gravel entrance is right in front of you. It goes into the parking lot signed Swan Lake. The parking is very good but the area is mosquito haven. Make sure you have your Rockport Perfume (mosquito spray) with you.



The route to the designated launch site is straight ahead to the water. From the parking to the water is far enough a yakker should have his yak cart along to carry the yak. The water on normal tide is at the post on the left. But with winter tides it is a long muddy march to the water and most yak carts will not work in the mud.



There are not restroom facilities at this location and anywhere nearby.

On the way back out to the highway we met up with some new friends. They were ready to visit for a good while but we had to head back to the Castle. 




It was a nice gentle outing and a very outstanding day for trying to have tooooo much fun.
