YAKERS OVER THE MOON ABOUT PADDLING

When the moon isn’t busy waxing and waning, it plays host to the Exit 109 Yakers‘ monthly celebration of the sport of kayaking. The group, which comprises both newcomers looking to meet other kayakers and old friends who paddle together multiple times a week, gathers at Red Bank’s Maple Cove each full moon for a “meet and eat” feast at 6 p.m. before heading out. The group, a product of a Meetup.com page organized by Cindy Burnham,┬áheaded west toward Shadow Lake right at sunset Friday, forming a 32-vessel rainbow on onto our beautiful Navesink River. Next one is slated for Sunday, September 28. (Photo by Stacie Fanelli. Click to enlarge.)
