Nothing special, just a few hours spend on the river.

I hope you folks all had a nice day, I did.

Lets head under the Washington St. Bridge.

Bright sun, a little windy, but the tide was high and it was cool enough to paddle hard without overheating. So off from the Elm St. launch and down Indian Head River onto the upper reaches of the North River. Ah! Home!


I have to work so hard to grow, protect and cultivate my flowers. But on the river all I have to do is enjoy them.

Here’s a first. A wild turkey coming down to the waters edge to drink. See him?

Saw me.


One of these days I’m going to land on this bank of the river and take off the PFD, grab the rope and swing far out into the river and get wet! Haven’t done that in forty-five years.

Do you remember this picture of the river flowing under the Washington Street Bridge under the force the falling tide?

I’ve paddled against it, great exercise, pull hard..faster!

Now this is slack tide today.

Same stretch of the river, but for 15 minutes on each side of slack water, easye peasey.

Now, a quick stop at the pub and its a perfect day.
