View Full Version : First Official "Float to the Springs Day!"
05-23-2007, 10:47 AM
John and I would like to invite anyone who is interested in spending the day on the River to join us on a Float to Shannondale Springs on Sunday May 27. We'd like to get canoes/kayaks in the River by our house in John Brown Farm around 11 AM. We can paddle/float down river to Shannondale Springs , arriving around 1PM. There we can stretch our legs have lunch and get a tour from our own Shannondale Springs Historian, Willis Nowell. From that point we can paddle another 5-10 minutes and get out at the public access, or anyone who can't resist a little more time on the river, can continue down to the public access points on Bloomery Road or Chestnut Hill.
We have a couple of extra kayaks and possibly an extra canoe, so don't let that stop you -its going to be a beautiful day , so come on out and enjoy the River!
Email to me for directions or more info. and we'll work out the logistics.

well, perhaps that isn't the best exclamatory phrase for the event, but...
...What an opportunity for a family to get their feet wet(oops, another not so apt phrase) and try canoing rental free and enjoy a serene riparian tableau on the way to the Springs(Cripes, they say, doesn't this guy speak English??)
A can't miss chance!!
But I'd be a bit wary of this character who's on the docket to act as tour guide at Shannondale Springs. He's got a shifty eye.
Seriously, I'll try to impart some of my enthusiasm for our historical treasure to the participants.

Willis, for those of us non-floaters, so to speak, where are we all meeting and at what time? I'm still not positive I can make it but I'm sure going to try! I want to hear the shifty-eye'd tourguide!

Wormie, We'll meet a little before 1PM at the end of Shannondale Springs Rd. -the boat ramp. I'd refer you to the topic
A map can be found
One of these days I'll get up another /better map

Theresa this sounds like a great idea. I'll have to see if the hubby has already booked us for Sunday - if not this will be great.

I was hoping you would come - watch out - we may decide to kayak to your house and take out there ... we hear you have plentiful wine...
