When I was researching the Georgia coast, I talked with Danny Grissette of Altamaha Coastal Tours. In addition to picking his brain about camping pull-out spots, I asked if he had any size 12 paddling booties.He referred me to Savannah Canoe & Kayak, saying that while he didn’t have what I needed, the folks in Savannah most likely would. On the way out of Savannah after our day of touring, we stopped at
Savannah Canoe & Kayak, and had the chance to meet Nigel and Kristin Law. They run tours, provide instruction from beginner through American Canoe Assoc. instructor training, including safety and rescue classes, and have a nice shop with a very complete inventory that meets the needs of a loyal local clientele. They are a friendly and enthusiastic couple that obviously enjoy what they do, and besides a nice visit, we did indeed find a nice pair of Stohlquist paddling shoes, a paddle float, and a Nalgene water bottle. You can find them at savannahcanoeandkayak.com or 912-341-9502. Oh, I almost forgot. On their list of “Frequently Asked Questions,” the answer to the one about whether Kristin has any sisters is apparently a ‘No’.
Tomorrow will be a travel day, but we'll get the large amount of material from our Savannah visit posted over the next couple days. Cheers, jim
