What We Saw

This paddle is typical of the salt marsh, grassy tidal creeks in this part of the coast.

Troupe Creek runs into the Intracoastal Waterway to the south where you'll probably see commercial boats like the ones at left.

We headed north (left) during low tide to explore the narrow side channels of the creek.

You'll paddle surrounded by tall grasses and, at low tide, mud.

The kids enjoyed paddling head on into the soft sand banks burying the bows into the freshly drained mud.
