Sigh. Sometimes summer is so slow in coming, you’ve just got to haul your cold, weary self over to it. That’s what Jean said, anyway, mid-April. (Any excuse to paddle Cumberland Island again!) As you may recall, Cumberland is Georgia’s largest and outermost “wild” barrier island, where feral horses outnumber people, and pesky no-see-ums make it easy to see why.
Here are a few highlights of Jean’s trip with NYC pal, Joanne, and folks from Geneva Kayak, starting with a moment of Southern comfort (click to play video):
The whole purpose of the trip was to thaw our surf-zone and navigation skills. So we loaded our boats, buckled up with Jesus (!) and hit the water. Following are moments from Crooked River State Park and St.Marys, GA; and nearby Amelia Island, Florida.
