Eric, Jean and Jim kayaked from Newport to Amity Hall today. Eric clocked it at 10.4 miles.
It was a beautiful day and a beautiful trip.
We were mostly just floating along with the river and it took 5 hours.
There were several small ledges. The biggest seemed to be close to a 2-foot drop.
The place I went through was a good slot and I didn't hit bottom.
I did come to a couple real shallow places were I had to get out and walk a few feet.
Mike picked up an old ceramic insulator from the river bottom and
Jean picked up a sun bleached turtle shell.
I am glad I was able to make this trip. It was great fun.
