Ashville Bridge Creek, Horn Point – Last Shuttle Docks with ISS

Distance: 3.1 Miles
Launchsite: Horn Point

Yeah I’m home and the weathers nice, and I don’t have another trip until Wednesday, I can get the Kayak out and paddle. The pace of work travel has made my weekly trips more quarterly.

I was able to get out on the water today , only to confirm how out of shape I’ve become with all this traveling I’ve been doing, and I wont have another chance until late August…

Iced on New Years Eve….

I was hoping to sneak one last trip in before the New Year, but city employees and conditions conspired against me…
The plan was Munden Point Park, but when I arrived I was confronted with this….

Parks are closed on New Years Eve

On the trip home,I was going to try an alternate site but conditions (icy ramps) weren’t really conducive to launching, Beggars Bridge is bad enough with out ice.

Y’all have a Happy New Year…

Ashville Bridge – North Carolina Ratifies the U.S. Constitution

Distance: 2 Miles
Launchsite: Lotus Garden Park

I came to the realization today, that it’s not the length of the trip, or how fast you do it, it is the trip itself…
I really need to get back to that, and just enjoy…
In the past I’ve worried way too much on how fast I can get to here or there

I was really lucky to get this picture of a Blue Heron, they are usually very skittish, and I mostly and up with a blurry picture of the bird flying away
Blue Herron in cypress tree

Smith’s Creek – First Transcontinental Telegraph 1861 – Chargers Disappoint

Distance: 3.5 Miles

Launchsite: Baum Road

Snuck this one in, Chargers Patriots, had a late start, and I really didn’t have an early game of interest, but considering the result I really didn’t have an interest in that game either…

Been 11 months since my last trip here, and I don’t know why it is so long between my visits here, it is one of my favorite places.

There are a few more pictures, but I am having a little image compatibility issues with my new camera, Raw is not supported yet…
