River Float

September and the temperatures in the the 30's C...
It's mid week and hubby's now retired...
We haven't had time in years to float down the river...
Today is the day!
First we have to drop off our bikes where we will end our floating...
We drive 16 Km to where we will launch the dingy...

 Pump it up. . .
We're set to go...
The scenery is beautiful.  . .


We see bird, hear crickets,

 It is the most peaceful thing to do!
Three hours and 11.2 Km later we are by our bikes.
We now tie up our dingy and ride our bikes 15 Km to the car! What a beautiful bike ride ...
We pick up the dingy...now we're headed home...
So next time if any of you want to join us...
we'd love to have you along:)

  1. Wonderful day to be floating. We canoe and I never thought to leave our bikes at the destination so we could ride them back to our car, perfect idea.
