6:45 Breakfast- cereal, milk and bananas
8:00 Drive 3 miles to the boat launch- This is where we put the kayaks in the water. There are lots of fisherman that put their boats in the estuary here. It is a busy place.7:15 Packing the gear- We pack up all of our gear into the truck for the day. This includes, lizard nooses, lizard bags, drinking water, dry shoes, sunscreen, cameras, animal coolers, lizard noose repair kit, duct tape (you always need duct tape), life jackets, kayaks, paddles and of course lunch (usually pb&j sandwiches, apples and granola bars).
8:30 Paddle out to the islands- This is one of my favorite parts of the day. It takes about 10 minutes to paddle to Island M, our closest island, and about 45 minutes to paddle to Island F, the furthest island. We often have dolphins swim near us while we paddle.
9:00 We land on an island. This requires us to wade through the shallow water. Since Tim cut his foot on an oyster shell two days ago, we have to help him keep his feet dry. See this video.
