Howdy again from the kayak cockpit! ;-) Wednesday's weather was partly sunny, highs in the mid 40's, and southeast winds around 5mph. Good conditions for paddling! Put in was again at Eno River Boat Ramp at Falls Lake.
Spotted this Blue Heron on my out bound leg. I think he was so cold that he did not bother to fly away. ;-) He allowed me to get quite close.
About halfway into the trip, it did become "partly sunny." The sun was a great relief because temperatures then quickly climbed into the mid 40's. Cloud formations were impressive and beautiful!
Here an old growth dead tree's massive root system is exposed, a victim of water and wind erosion. It will soon topple into the Eno River.
And, so with this paddling trip on the Eno River, my 2009 paddling season comes to an end! :-( But I'm looking forward to new and exciting paddling adventures in 2010! :-)
