The Search Begins
Spring has sprung from its icy trap and Jonathan and I can finally wander about in search of adventure. One of the "must-do-soon" items on our list is dropping our poor, dusty kayaks into some refreshing waters.
We started our investigation of the local waterways at Rapidan Dam Park.
The Blue Earth River runs along the park.
It looks both scenic . . .
. . .and tranquil.
The park has a canoe launch and a Dam Store (that's just fun to say). Apparently, the Dam Store is famous for its delicious homemade pies. We'll have to try them some time and see.
And as the name suggests, there's also a dam to walk across--which we did.
This looks like a promising place to start paddling. Hopefully, we'll get a chance to wet our toes soon!
