I think the rain will take a break Saturday afternoon, so let's go check out Wilket Creek to see if it is flooded.
Then we will continue to Edwards Gardens, there should be lots of flowers in bloom.
A nice short easy walk on an otherwise soggy weekend.
There is a Starbucks at the beginning and end of the hike to get a hot chocolate or coffee to warm up.
