After putting in, I headed under a bridge to the northwest the area beyond which is completely "no wake", with the northernmost portion limited to electric motors. Thus, very few power boats - none while I was there.
Nice wooded shoreline along both sides. Plenty of birds, especially my favorite local - the Gray Heron. Lots of turtles, or at least their heads (I assume they had turtles attached to them.) with several sunning themselves on logs. Also, float fishing appears to be popular in this area, with several lines visible. Water calm.
After touring that end, I headed back through the bridge and up the southern edge to the bridge at Route 48, then across and back down the northern shore to the access. Saw a group of several heron around what looked to be a nesting area. One was very angry at me for intruding, squawking and giving me the stink eye. The wind had picked up when I entered this area, which is more open and wider. The wind combines with the shallow water to make it slightly more challenging for a beginner like me.
Overall, a nice quiet paddle for a Saturday morning.
