The 28th is a few days before the full moon. A strong ebb tide will push us down the river. The high tide at Toledo is predicted to be at about 11:15 in the morning. The high tide at the Cannon Quarry ramp should be about a half hour later, so the plan is to leave the ramp at about noon. The 4 3/4 mile float down to the Toledo ramp near the airport should take less than a couple of hours. After shuttling trailers and pulling boats and getting back to Toledo it will be time for pizza from Cobblestone Pizza. We'll eat it in a safe, socially distanced way under the pavilion near the walking path along the slough.
