I went out paddling this afternoon with Will Coolidge. I decided it had been long enough since I had the tandem out , so I took the ever fearless seadog, Scruffy, along with me. We put in off of the causeway (to La Framboise Island) and paddled upstream. The total trip ended up right at 5 miles. Our destination is a small island/sandbar with a few trees and shrubs. I have dubbed the isle: Pallet Island because there are a number of pallets laying on along it.
Size comparison: Will in a borrowed WS Tempest next to the Pierre-Ft Pierre railroad bridge. This is the span that used to rotate out to allow steamships to pass.We saw many kayakers out today. It was a good sight, but this one baffled us a bit. If you look close this paddler has his/her boat standing on end!
