It's been a couple of weeks since I've been on the water due to illness, but today was a beautiful day to get back out there. My youngest daughter and I hit the water at high tide and launched from the Antioch Marina. The sun was shining and the water was smooth. We decided to head east and just paddle along the Antioch waterfront. We took our time and paddled past the Riverview Lodge to the old Antioch Lumber Co., which was founded in 1864. We then paddled a little further east to the Fulton Shipyard which was established in 1918 and closed in 1999. We stayed offshore as there were quite a few submerged wrecks with lots of hazards in view. We hung out for awhile taking in the view and soaking up the sun. As we headed back to the launch we were greeted by a seal swimming in the opposite direction. It was a great day to be out and this week is looking like the weather will be perfect to spend more time on the water!
