Today's "Wednesday Wandering" took us to Lost Isle , Spud and Hog Island and it was an amazing adventure! The Delta offers endless possibilities for exploration and today we discovered another jewel. We launched under the warm sunshine from Tiki Lagun at 2:30 with low tide predicted for 3:18 . Tiki Lagun Resort and Marina has a launch ramp with a couple of docks that kayaks can launch from for $3. Be sure and check in at the store to get a guest pass and a code for the restrooms. They also offer camping and will soon have their own kayak rentals available.
After launching we headed northeast on Turner cut toward Acker Island. Acker Island is the location of the infamous Lost Isle and they are actually working on opening it up to the public again. Spud Island and Hog Island are privately owned and Discover the Delta Foundation is also working on plans to open it up for camping and exploration.
This lovely area is lined with nice sandy beaches where you can stop and stretch under the shade of one of the many tall trees on shore. While paddling through Hog Cut we came upon a seal doing some fishing and it looked like he was having some success. He soon disappeared before us and then reappeared about 50 feet behind us. We decided to take a peek around the east side of Hog Island.
Time seems to pass very quickly when I'm on the water. The sun began to creep lower in the sky and we reluctantly decided we should head back to the put in. Another wonderful day on the water with great company!
