Timed the tides well

The tides online were wrong and as we arrived at 9am the tide was still going out. Had to walk the kayak probably 100meters to get to the deeper water then just carefully navigated the deep(er) areas. As we got to Smithtown Landing the tide changed and started coming in. Not too many people on the water that early, lots of birds and just a beautiful day to paddle. We didn't head all the way to Kings Park but met another kayaker who did. When we got too tired of the current/wind we turned around the let the tide take us back. Lots more traffic on the way back as the rentals had opened up. Really beautiful day.
