Hat, sunscreen, drinking water
Please note
Remember to take your binoculars if you want to go bird watching.

Enjoy a family picnic on the foreshore, bring along a fishing line and try your luck. The area is also great for spotting sea eagles and cormorants. Be sure to remind the kids to keep an eye out for sea turtles along the shore, too.

This open grassy area is perfect for the little ones to run around. After lunch you might like to push a kayak out onto the calm blue waters. Bring your camera to capture the beautiful views and the wildlife that lives in, around, and above the lake.
