SPC – Fall Colours on the LaHave River – Saturday, October 13, 2018

“The mate was a mighty sailin’ man, the Skipper brave and sure. Five passengers set sail that day for a three hour tour. A three hour tour. “……..

Well, I am sure our La Have River cruise will not share the same fate of Gilligan and his fellow travelers. Our three hour cruise will give those attending the opportunity to see the fall colours along the La Have River from an unique perspective.

We will depart from the wharf in Riverport and head upriver towards Bridgewater and return to the dock. If mother doesn’t cooperate and the fall colors are not what we want we can/may alter the cruise to be partly a river cruise and then take a trip around the islands at the mouth of the La Have River. To make this work based on a “cost basis” we will need a min of 10 participants and a max of 12 at $40 each. The cruise will take place on 13-Oct-18. At the time of writing this I am waiting to hear back from the skipper on the best time for departure….he is checking on the tide times for the 13th.

While I understand 13-Oct-18 might not be the best date considering our Vineyard tour is scheduled for 14-Oct-18 there was not much of a choice. Some members indicated that they could not attend if it was held on the Thanksgiving weekend and 20-Oct-18 typically is too late to get decent photos of the fall colors.

Cost: $40 each (min 10 participants and max 12)

Notes:
1. This will be open to the first 11 members to get me their $40 via email or at a meeting. No refunds. If we do not get 10 paid participants by 06-Oct-18 (9:00 p.m.) I will cancel the field trip and return all funds.
2. The cruise is on a working fishing boat. So please wear appropriate clothing and footwear. Last year when I attended the boat was very clean. The deck of the boat is mainly level but there is a hatch cover here or there to watch for.
3. This will be a go rain or shine.

Any questions please email fieldtrips@sackvillephotographyclub.com.

Thanks,
Darren
