Beware the disembodied head!
So much for that selfie ... this is our crew, minus a few stragglers.
|So weird to actually see the slope of the river.|
Too subtle in FLat FL.
|Pretty good-looking crew.|
I never did get a shot of all of us together... some of us float faster than others.
|This damselfly stowed away for a bit on my finger. He stayed there as I dug the camera out of the mesh bag (which was zipped up) and turned it on ... single- handedly.|
|I thought sure he would leave as soon as I finished my camera grabbing shenanigans, but no! He actually cooperated.|
|It was the 4th of July holiday weekend, so getting a river photo without pink tubes was a bit of a challenge, but I did squeak in this one.|
This is a must do for us every time we head up to Blue Ridge in warm weather.
It wasn't Florida, ... no humidity, blast furnace heat, or bugs, but I have to admit, it was a blast.
The best tube vendor on the river is Toccoa Valley Campground. The place is clean, friendly, and upstream enough to give you a perfect 6 mile section of the river to float down.
When your float is done, their fleet of big vans will be waiting to bring you back to your starting point at the campground.
The whole process from tube checkout to van ride back is smooth and carefree.
(Plus ... they have Barney, the chocolate Lab)
