Decided to paddle Stave lake this afternoon, well the lower part of the lake that is. Paddled up to Lone tree island via the east side of the lake. I thought the noise from all the off roaders would spoil the paddle but hardly heard them at all ( and yes there was plenty of them out there.) Overall it is a lake worth revisiting. Met another Kayaker that just moved here from Halifax, so he should be popping up on the site soon.
