Hot and sunny with temps in the low 90’s, the weather for Day 2 of Paddle Georgia was gorgeous! Psyched for the awesome 15 mile paddle ahead we loaded up and hit the river!
The scenery was green and pristine, cypress cones and moth cocoons dangled from overhanging limbs kissing the river surface and meadows of aquatic yellow blooms and lily pads graced the landscape.
Remnants of fence posts and tree stumps from pre-dam days lined the banks with new growth resembling beautiful floral arrangements or frizzy Chia Pets.
Flint Riverkeeper, Gordon Rogers welcomed the Paddle Georgia paddlers on his Party Pontoon Boat wishing everyone a safe trip.
Dragonflies buzzed and dipped catching rides on our paddles and majestic Egrets and Great Blue Herons took flight overhead.
The Camp Horizon kids continued to enjoy themselves swimming, singing and practicing for the Talent Show, and stuck it out as the countless motor boats zoomed past on the last 3 miles of tough lake paddling. Great job y’all!
It was yet another amazing day on the magical Flint river and we can’t wait for the journey tomorrow.
Keep on rollin’ down the river.
