Taylor Island Wildlife Refuge

Perhaps the finest kayaking area on the central bay, the extensive meanders of Slaughter Creek
through the Broads, as the area is known, offers a fine day of exploration. While the ponds create a trackless wilderness to explore, getting truly lost is difficult, as trees in the distance provide reference points.

Access is possible from several roads, though we like to anchor just north of the bridge and wander from there, sometimes using our tender to tow the kayaks deeper into the wilderness, to extend our range. The main course of the creek is not too hard to follow, but the side branches are a maze.

Bald eagles are quite common, with numerous nests visible.

I'd be happy to add entire descriptions, if you have an idea that fits. Just give a hint here and we'll swap e-mails.
