|Heading up the side creek|
Baganara Island Resort has numerous kayaks for guests to use. The cruisers can use them as well - Thank you Baganara! David and Randy learned from the bartender that there is a side creek with a "swimming hole" near by the resort. Next thing you know, an excursion was planned.
Assistant manager Angel and bartender Dania accompanied our circus in order to show us the way. It was a HOT day. Very HOT! "Who in the hell picked noon, the hottest part of the day for this excursion to kick off?" However, it turns out that when the tide flows out, cool creek water fills up the creek so we had to go then to catch the last half of the falling tide. Ah-ha. The creek water is at least 20 degrees cooler than the Essequibo River water. NICE!
We all paddled up a good distance and then got out of our kayaks to have a cool soak. There wasn't really a "swimming hole" that I could see but it didn't matter. Once again, the water color is tinted red from dead plants and minerals.

This was the first of many trips up this side creek. Sometimes we went up there to cool off. Other times to explore and discover what we could see and hear.
