Did 11.26 Miles Saturday

OK, Saturday turned out to be one of the prettiest days we’ve had in a while.  I loaded the boat on the car Friday night, ready for an early start.

I went to the new Don Carter State park, put in and paddled down to the Olympic Rowing Venue (1996 Summer Olympics) and back.  Details here:  http://www.everytrail.com/view_trip.php?trip_id=2251723

It was a great day!  By far, my longest outing.  The north end of the run (closest to the State Park), the water was smooth without a lot of other boaters.  But, the south end (closer to Clarks Bridge) was a wild ride!  Lots of power boats making waves.  I have to say, my Pelican rode it out just fine.  Not to jinx myself, but I’ve logged over 30 miles in 4 outings in this thing, rode out some pretty choppy water, and I’ve not tipped over…. YET!
