St. Peters Lake offers a multitude of paddling pleasures. A few cottages are located on the northwestern shore of St. Peters Lake, but otherwise there is no sign of human habitation. Ducks feed and rest in the high marsh grass. Once you push off from the hard-packed clay ramp, you can pick your own direction.We paddled to the left, using the southwest side of the lake as a leeward barrier. Here, the water was placid, while away from the shore, there was a chop from the westerly breeze. Moored in this deep lake, north of a little island, was a sparkling white sailboat. Paddling toward the sand hills to the north, but keeping close to the salt marsh, I looked for the passageway that would allow us to get out to the sand dunes. The paddle from starting point to the edge of the sand dunes, after weaving through a winding channel, took about forty-five minutes of leisurely effort. Beach your craft on the northern shore of the lake and walk over the dunes to the deserted and seemingly endless ocean beach on the Gulf of St. Lawrence. This is a perfect place to relax and enjoy a picnic lunch.
