In our continued effort to improve our mutt's sea legs, we regularly take Eleanor on paddles. This time, with Eleanor turning 1, we met up with a few friends and took to the water, launching kayaks from Hammocks Beach State Park, just outside of Swansboro NC.
Hammocks Beach is a popular kayak/canoe launch in the area. We've paddled from here before, it's got a nice launch and plenty of parking. Rentals are available from the site in the high season. Trips to nearby Bear Island, Emerald Isle, the Swansboro waterfront (i.e. restaurants), & Jones Island are possible - just watch the current, wind, and weather. Conditions change pretty quick this close to the sea, especially in the summer.
For us, it ended up being a quick paddle (with the puppies and all). Eleanor seems to be getting the hang of it...maybe I should try to get her out on our new little sailboat?
