Must wear a PFD, bring a lunch/snack, as we will stop at Silver Springs State Park. It is forecasted to be a partly sunny afternoon with temps in the upper 40's - lower 50's with a moderate south breeze.

A FULL change of clothes in a dry 'dump' bag is required in case of a swim. Dress for the cold water temperatures, NOT the sunny air temperatures
