A great day on the river
Todays trip down the Saco River was absolutely GREAT!! I will admit the ride up to Fryeburg this morning was a wet one. It was sprinkling as we unloaded the kayaks, but stopped as we entered the river. 10:35am. With sun and clouds, the temps were in the high 60's. It was the perfect day to paddle down the Saco River. From Swan's Falls to the Brownfield Bridge, 20 plus miles and 6 hours of paddling. It was Team2hunt, Tat, and kayakerinme. We shared the day with about 100 others in all types of rafting configurations. Those in canoes were happy to see us in our kayaks, espicially Tom in his homemade wooden kayak. ( I'm going out and buy some wooden looking shelf liner to turn my kayak into a wooden looking one like Tom's.) We stopped several times to swim or grab a cache. We also had fun playing with our bilges like super soakers. Getting wet along the way was part of the fun. We listened to Jimmy Buffet tunes , and watched alot of people enjoying the day. Sorry you missed it Rick. The weather was perfect for a paddle and the river flowed at around 2 miles per hour all by itself. This was the second kayak trip of the summer and another great time with friends. We will definitely do this again, and soon I hope. Stick around for more details. Thanks to Tom and Barry, for going along whatever the weather forecast was.
Why not live life like it is your last day....instead of pretending to be a member of the Peter Pan Club and believing you will be around forever.
