Friday June 9th 8:30pm - 10ish
The June Full Moon is also called the Full Strawberry Moon, symbolizing the ripening of local fruits. Because this full moon is the lowest of the year, it is likely to rise with an amber glow. Ahhhhhhh so beautiful.
Here's the plan,
Meet at Riverfront Park by 8:30pm for a leisurely paddle with the sunset and hope for clear skies as the moon rises over The Dalles. The forecast is improving slightly as the week progresses. Make plans to join us, perform your luck ritual of choice, and stay open to the possibilities.
You will want to park your vehicles in the The Dalles Marina lot. Please do not leave your car in Riverfront Park after dusk! We need to be thoughtful to Parks and Recreation workers who will be locking the gates.
Bring a light source. Glow sticks are great for keeping the group together. A more powerful light at the front of your board is a good way to be seen by boat traffic, headlamp, flashlight, cell phone in a clear waterproof box (my favorite) are all great options.
The current continues to run fast and the water is still cold so wearing your leashes and PFDs is strongly encouraged!
If you do not have your own board, you can rent one for $20 (reservations are REQUIRED, sign up now).
