Scouting Lake HB Robinson, Hartsville, SC

Headed out after work a few days ago for Lake HB Robinson in Hartsville. Nice paddle. It don’t look too bad in the picture, but once I got the boat out, the wind started whippin’. Storming just to the west, so no wonder. Fun fun, and good boat practice riding waves.

Spring is here

and the water is warming up. Had a nice paddle on Lake Juniper the other day. Got to have a look at a huge osprey nest in a cypress tree. She was not very happy. Dad was sitting in the next tree.

Morrow Mountain, NC New Years day 2014

As usual, I headed up to Morrow Mountain, NC for the traditional New Years day ride. It was only 3 of us showing up this year. It might have been a little too cold for some. Took the opportunity to scout out some prospective kayak paddle destinations, and Yadkin River looks very nice. Water is not very clear, but still a nice paddle destination.

Lots of deer running around in the state park, as usual. Can't wait to go camping up there this spring.
