Kayaking the Wading River
What with all the dropping off of kayaks and jockeying of cars, one wonders whether there’ll be time left to kayak!
There aren’t many trees that give off those bright colors here in the Pine Barrens except for the river birch and sweet gum.
Upon first entering the water, I noticed a snake zig-zagging across the river. I thought it best to give him the right-of-way!
The road down to the bridge is a three-mile combination of smooth, pot-holed, and sugar sand road. Not good for a car like mine that is not equipped with four-wheel drive.
The Sierra Club was out on the water as were a handful of Boy Scouts and various other people–it was a beautiful, clear, crisp fall day.
There were some pretty hefty wind gusts on the river that caused Ks- jacket to make her look like the Michelin Man!
The 5.8 mile paddle is fairly easy and only takes three hours–a very enjoyable three hours. (Thanks to K- and C-!)
I hope everyone enjoyed their weekend. I certainly did!
Daily Gratitude: A beautiful, Fall day.
