Nice, I am sure we will be out there soon. Do you launch from the small ramp at 38th? Doesn't seem to be many good ramps into the bay.

Boat's in my backyard. See sig. But, yes I do. If I need to pull it that's where I go. It's a small lot. Can hold about 6 trailers.

If you have a Kayak, put in at Weedon Island. Many folks do. There's a path to follow thru the Mangroves. It's gorgeous in there.

Hmm I will have to research other ramps, I imagine on a weekend morning the lot gets full quick.

hit up the Getaway(gandy) via boat for the first time last Saturday. loved it. marine forecast says bay waters are going to be "smooth" again this weekend, so I think we are going to make the nice ride from Safety Harbor to the Getaway again.

Last weekend was the smoothest this year, ended up going to the Gulf. This weekend, we're heading to Egmont Key on Saturday.

I shot down to The Island Way Grille and Raw Bar Saturday afternoon. Ride back was smooth sailing (motoring). Loved it!!!

There's always children playing at that sandbar (along with adults and their dogs). It's a very popular place. It's a very long bar. Be sure to ride the length of it to get to know it. It is all apart of Weedon Island. Riviera Bay is a great place for water sports. All these sandbars are covered in water when the tide is high. Let me know when you're going. Maybe we can hookup.
