What an amazing weekend!
This was my first Co-Ed event with the Women in the Outdoors. I had the pleasure of making many new friends and meeting the families of many old friends. Over 55 people showed up for this years event adn with the river appx. 12 ft higher this year than last the view had changed quite a bit. Wendall and his staff at American Canoe Adventures were wonderful! Sarah really did a great job organizing this event and everyone had a great time! We took on 12 miles the first day. The river was wide, dark with tanis and moving swiftly. We put in at White Springs and traveled as far as Woods Ferry River Camp the first day. THere we either camped in our tents or we able to stay in wonderful screened platforms. Sarah and her "helpers" made us a wonderful dinner including pulled-pork sandwiches that were out of this world delicious! After lots of visitng and catching up a few rounds of RLC were played the "Suwannee River Debbie Sandwich pair" won the pots :-). The next moring after hot fresh coffee we were back on the river. The current had slowed a bit, so we did a little more rowing – but also made more stops for fun! Rope swings, sandy beaches, and springs really made our day! This is one trip I will never forget! I also took time to check out a few more state parks…but I will save that for another blog.
