The canoe trip to Blackwater River went off without a hitch.. It was fun in the sun for all. As stated previously, we took the (long ass) 23 mile canoe/camping trip. The water levels were a little lower than I had anticipated but it was all good. We had an average height of about 3-3.5 feet with a relatively slow current. The biggest downside to the trip (outside of sand in the ass while (attempting) sleeping) was the debris in the river as there was a sizable number of downed trees and stumps in the water. There were actually even a couple of trees that spanned the entire width of the river complicating passage at times but when walking away from a trip with no snakes spotted and no canoes having tipped, by default, one must consider it a good trip.
We were fortunate on all fronts, weather included. Although the days were hot were graced with cool breezes and a cool night for camping. The sky was pristine and clear leaving the group with a lightshow in the stars beyond compare. There were lots of drank beers and possibly a few lies told amongst friends under the stars (and over the phone waves â€“ sorry Green) while spending our time on the river. The dogs of course enjoyed their second outing with us; which allowed them countless hours of frolicking in the mud and sandâ€¦.what dogs wouldn’t love it? Wellâ€¦ what’s left to say that this and the pictures haven’t? Not too muchâ€¦ just that, well I am ready for a vacation from my vacationâ€¦ I need to book an AIRCONDITIONED room at the beach!
