Just went canoeing up Widgeon. Thought we were smart, read the posts, researched the tide charts, formulated our plan. Hah!
I concur. The tides at Pitt have a mind of their own.
I formerly spent a lot of time on the lake so I was fairly confident, even though my paddling partner was a first-timer. We had no problems, but I was disconcerted by how far off the mark we were.
Crossing back to the boat launch in the afternoon in the northerly winds was fun. We pretty much surfed across on the big waves. Yeehah!
