Saco Trip

Recommended Posts

Had a fantastic time on the water thanks to the Weatherman & Company.

THe morning started with a ton of dense fog headed up on Rt16 to Conway. Despite me suggesting to the driver that he slow down due to staties, we got pulled over anyway. 3 minutes after a very professional stop, we were on our way with a small window to catch the river bus. IMG_4960.thumb.JPG.c21347c4cd98352d5e870c214ad33b5d.JPG

We put in over by the jam stand where I promptly flipped my rig for the first time that day. Soaking wet, the first of many beers were cracked. 

After dodging a group of folks fly fishing, we rounded the corner and were greeted by a great view of Cathedral Ledge.

We paddled, drank, and babbled about everything and nothing in particular. More views followed. IMG_4966.thumb.JPG.e081091aca86a3eb167a20b202086971.JPGIMG_4967.thumb.JPG.10d12f63b91679b0a789591e1595d5f6.JPG

We saw a squirrel swim, which, very few of us knew could happen. Sadly, mother nature did not demonstrate the circle of life and a hawk did not swoop in and pluck it out of the water.

I managed to flip my kayak a second time and these outstanding people helped me gather up my yard sale (is there a technical term for that on the river vs the snow?), empty the water, and get back on track.

Most folks were picking up trash along the way. This funnel was discovered floating in the water. Upon pulling it out (giggity), we found that it was a beer funnel attached to a highlighter pink dildo. Some bachelorette party must've been really sad to have lost such a treasure.

We stopped for lunch on a beach near a very pretty bend in the river where much swimming, boozing, and relaxing was had.

After this, the music got turned up and we joined the masses of tubers floating down the river. My memory got hazy, but there was also drunken mini golfing and a fire.

Good times!!! 

The pink dildo was the highlight of my day. I'm glad somebody took pictures. Things tend to get more than a little hazy by the end of a day like that.

I do remember someone raiding the kitchen at 1:30am. Which makes me remember I was still awake at that hour.
