This is a very calm and very scenic trip with lots to see. This kayak trip started out early in the morning and we had some amazing morning fog. It was a sight to see, and our guests were in awe of the density of the fog. We also had a chance to chat with some heavy headed inner tubers who spent the night on the river camping. They obviously had a bit to drink so we joked with them before starting our trip.
Our out of town guests (Vermont and Chicago)really got a nice day. The sun was hidden and the temperature didn’t get too high. The start of the trip was slow going as our guests wanted to take pictures and just take it all in. This section is all flatwater with no shoals and faster water until you reach the end at Jones Bridge. I think we all enjoyed the peaceful early morning and a few times I lost our guests in the thick fog. This was one of the selling points to get everyone to wake up early enough to get on the river.
Again, thanks to our new guests and our old friends for making the tour a ton of fun. We had our first four legged friend, aptly named Georgia. I was so impressed how well the dog did riding on the front of a kayak. Too bad my dog weighs 94lbs. He would have loved kayaking with us this weekend.
We even had a brave Chicago guest who decided he wanted to jump in. I think he expected waters that were a bit warmer but he said it was exhilarating none-the-less. I debated jumping in but saw his face and decided to pass on that idea. Damn cold waters!
This trip is perfectly suited for beginners and sight see-ers. You can see some beautiful homes along the way and the biggest of them all the Tyler Perry mansion. This trip took around 3 hrs mostly due to the slow waters.
Thanks again to the crew and cheers from Kayak Guy Atlanta. If you want to join us for a trip like this, call (678-920-3944) or email (Scott@KayakGuyAtlanta.com).
