After a grueling day of paddling through horrendous winds, we made it 23.5 miles down the mighty Mississippi. (Total river miles to date: 377.6) Shooting photos along the way was virtually impossible because the wind was blowing directly into my face and it was all I could do to keep the boat facing into the wind. Except for a short 30 minute lull, the winds followed along the relatively straight stretch of the river. On the bright side, the river was fast flowing and we managed to set a speed record of 8.7 mph over the 23 miles we traveled today.
We camped at Green Prairie canoe camp, and I love this spot. I simply don’t have much time left for blogging after taking care of the boat and personal needs each night. Wish I could post more, but I find that I must be in bed by 9pm to get enough sleep each night.
