The 4th is the day after the new moon. A really strong ebb tide will push us down the river. The high tide at Toledo is predicted to be at about noon. 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 1:00, after the ebb has had a chance to get moving good. 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.
