Stopped here to grab a shirt, I'm super picky about my t-shirts! They had a great selection of tri-blend tees! Picked up a shirt for my son too! Great selection of beer as well.

There were five of us including 2 teenage girls. We got three kayaks and two paddleboards. We all had a blast. It helped that the water was perfect.
