Second day of canoeing

Thanks to Prabasaj-da, I was able to go canoeing again in his Origami canoe today. We tried the Chattahoochee river this time. This experience was even better than the first time since we had our share of adventures.

First, we got stuck in the rocks around a few small rapids once. Took a bit of maneuvering and kicking the rocks to get unstuck.

Second, we saw this creature swiftly moving across the water. Looked like a turtle from a distance but it was too fast to be a turtle. There was a bird that swooped towards it but it sharply darted under water. And then it surfaced a few seconds later about 30 yards away near the other bank. For the life of us, we could not figure out what it was. This is about the time we were glad we were not in Florida đŸ™‚

After we were done and pulled out of the water in Azalea park, a handful of people came by to see us dismantle and fold up the canoe. Seemed like a few of them were aware of these foldable canoes!

The lush green trees on either side of the river was a sight to watch!
