Hi everyone! I took a much deserved day off from work on Friday and decided to do some paddling - imagine that! ;-) This trip I traveled 40 miles north on I85 to the small town of Henderson. It was another beautiful sunny day with temperatures in the low 60's F and a light (less than 10mph) breeze.
This region had experienced heavy rainfall and the water levels were very high. Large forest areas were submerged and I encountered numerous floating logs and other debris during my paddling on Flat Creek.
"Caught" this White Heron in my camera lens sitting on a tree stump. I drifted and he allowed me to get quite close before flying off. I believe I sighted him several more times during my paddling trip.
It was a beautiful day! Great cloud formations!
I landed in a cleared area to stretch my legs and...
... discovered a small picnic area. Great place for a picnic lunch, especially in the summer!
Back to the put in area. Another fun paddling adventure! :-)
