Sun, Jul 19 2015 - Sunday Morning Paddle at Olde Rope Mill Park (View Original Event Details)|
I had a great time today showing the river and park to many first timers there, and our paddle turned out to be a hot one by the end. We started by exploring the old mill, then, paddled over to the waterfall (where one person went swimming somewhat unexpectedly . . . don't worry, John, your secret is safe with us), and finally explored more towards the lake. We paddled approximately 7 miles and had a great time. Sadly, there is an abundance of trash all over the river, and we definitely need to schedule a clean up there in the future. Seven of us enjoyed lunch at Which Wich and six of us continued on to the Outlets. It just did not seem right to be so close and not take advantage of some shopping for outdoor clothes and gear.
Many thanks to Thomas and John for the great photos!
