These people were racing. A fairly narrow, twisty river, with a fast current is not a good place to hold a race, if you ask me. One asshole yelled at me to move over. Fuck you, I thought, if your group is going to race here, the racers are the ones who need to avoid obstacles in the river.
Wonder what the racers..some who were nice... thought of this.
Time to turn around
Chickens. Paddling on a canal. Looking for a place where I would be staying in April.
I bought a used kayak in March, 2005 and began sending tales of trips to friends and family. That November, generous friends bought me a camera, Canon Powershot 400, so pictures were added to the tales. January 2007, I was able to add underwater photography, thanks to one of my brothers. I am now on my sixth camera. As of May, 2014, I have a Powershot 115 IS.
When I began kayaking in 2005, I would search the Internet for paddling information, trip reports, and practical advice. I hope this site adds to your knowledge and enjoyment.
My home in Winter Park, FL,north of Orlando,allows easy access to both coasts and all the spring fed rivers in between. Many Tales are day trips. No overnight stay required.
