The view from the Neenah Channel by Shattuck Park

See the over 200 photos -Photo Gallery - Sunday Funday with some great weather. We packed up the pontoon and hit the water.  The wind wasn't bad and the waves were about 1 to 2.  We decided to go take a little run up the Neenah Channel. Never been up that way and figured it was a nice day to try it out.  Coming off the lake you will see a single red marker about 150ft out from the Kimberly Point Park Light House. From that point, the channel is very well marked right into the city of Neenah.  The first thing you will come across is the lighthouse. It is a very pretty old lighthouse that looks like it needs some new paint soon.  As you run down the channel you go past a number of beautiful homes and go past Riverside Park.  Just past the park is the bay where the sailboats all tie-up.  Seemed like there was not that many in the bay for some reason. Still cool to see from the water. Across the river from this bay is the Whiting Boat House and Doty Park Boat Launch.  A little farther up the river, you run past the Thedacare Hospital and the WG Bryan Bridge. The Dam is right past the bridge on the Northside.  Just past the bridge is the  Neenah Marina and Shattuck Park.  There is a nice boat dock and sea wall here. Which is right on the East end of Downtown Neenah.  There are a number of places you can go to for food and drink from here.  We spun around and headed back up the channel and off to Waverly Beach.  As usual, we pulled up close to the bar at Waverly. The band outside was Saddlebrook.  We went up and got a few drinks and watched the band and ran into a few people we know. On the way back out my wife pulls up a bottle from the water. It was weird because it looks really old. It was marked as M Koester & Sons Bottling company of Appleton. Never heard of it before. I am guessing it has been in the lake for a long long time. We also got a big kick out of a pontoon next to us that had a train horn. When he left he lights it up and scared the crapola out of a bunch of people. It was really funny. He drove off and we couldn't see him but could hear the horn yet. Overall the music was great, Sun was great, the water was great. Another fun day on the water. See all the photos - Photo Gallery
