Summer in earnest

We took our flotilla back to the river on Saturday. We had plans to actually paddle downstream: Angler’s Inn to Lock 10. In the modern age, we figured Lyft could be a part of the shuttle.

Unfortunately, when I tried to get a lyft back from Lock 10 to meet up with Sarah and Robert at Angler’s Inn, they were having credit card processing issues.

Fortunately, there happen to be a Barwood taxi driver who was enjoying the day at Lock 10. He was just leaving when I was giving up on Lyft and so that was perfect, urban boating — taxi for shuttle.

Unfortunately, I carefully left my paddle in the car at Lock 10, and realized it as I was walking to the river, waiting boats and Sarah and Robert at Angler’s Inn.

Fortunately, there are only a couple rapids on that stretch. After trying out Robert’s beach shovel as a paddle, I decided to hand paddle instead.

Unfortunately, there is a fair amount of flatwater, but the downstream breeze helped keep those of us without a paddle moving.

Fortunately, we discovered that rafting up, we could have the two outside boats paddle while the inside one held on.

It was a fun day on the water with an extra dose of adventure tossed in.

And a ropeswing break; Robert dropping in above; Sarah showing off below.
