Their Maiden Voyage – Thursday – October 2, 2014
It has been a while since we have kayaked along The Waccamaw River, part of The Intercoastal Waterway. We love to kayak there in the Spring when the Osprey are on their nests and the young chicks are arriving. Well, we missed the Spring, but today we got to join friends, Ron and Karen, on their maiden Sea Eagle voyage!!
Ron and Karen live on a large lake in New Hampshire and have hard kayaks. However, they wanted something more compact for traveling with their motorhome. We got talking and next thing you know, they had a Sea Eagle 370 just like ours;o)) They have been waiting for the right time to get it out of the box and into the water. Today is the day!!

We headed to Enterprise Landing and got the kayaks ready.
Bill was sporting his new hat:o))
Karen is working much too hard:o((
I need to teach her the Linda Payne Paddling Technique which I have mastered!!!
Today, the tides dictated that we head south toward Bucksport Marina.
We paddled south along the Waccamaw River
Our trip south was slow and easy with the tide.
When we reached Bucksport Marina, we timed it perfectly and met the changing tide.
Our return trip was also with the tide, up a narrower creek:o))
This “Fixer-Upper” caught Ron and Karen’s eye!!
Along the smaller, quieter creek we got to see a little nature.
A Wonderful Maiden Voyage!!
Thanks for letting us share the experience!!
