Caladesi Island Paddle with Events and Adventures

A great view of the Gulf of Mexico

April 23, 2011

Robin Hamm from Good Time Kayaking and I guided a great group from events and adventures on a kayak and hiking trip from Honeymoon Island to Caladesi Island. With over 40 persons we sure had our hands full. We pulled in 11 guides all highly qualified many with emergency responder and CPR training to make sure we had a safe trip. After a quick paddling lesson from Lisa it was time to get in the water.The current was strong that day and many of our guests struggled with getting the hang of things.

Upon arriving we broke everyone into smaller groups so some could paddle through the mangroves or just in the bay and others wanted to hike and explor the island.

We had a great hike on the island, we had very little bugs and a nice breeze!

The views from the island trails were wonderful, and the walk back along the beach was so refreshing!

About notacluegal

Jeanene was born in Pittsburgh, PA. As a young child her family was very active in the outdoors. Things changed when her parents decided to travel down different paths in life and with that decision so went many of the opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Being lucky to live in the suburbs Jeanene always had a backyard to play in and loved being outdoors. As the years passed she took every opportunity to be outdoors. She bought land in Tennessee and as a single mom moved her young daughter to the mountains. The were many life lessons learned on that mountain. There was no plumbing on the property – or even a house, but that did not stop her. She learned to live off of what was available and built her own cabin from the trees on her property. Those were rough years but the most rewarding. Now Jeanene resides in Tampa, Fl. and works as an office manager full time….but still yeans to be outdoors. Jeanene started “Not a Clue Adventures” to teach everyone she could how wonderful the outdoors are! That camping and fishing and hiking can be done by everyone and at many different levels. Single mom’s no longer have to be afraid to take their sons and daughters outdoors. By working with young couples, single parents and even seniors, she gets to teach others about her love for the outdoors and hopes to open their eyes to new adventures. In 2009, Jeanene completed certification as a Leave No Trace Instructor. She also works closely with the National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF), Florida Fish and Wildlife Commission (FWC) and the Florida State Parks. Jeanene is also certified in First Aid/Adult CPR.
