This rooster is guarding our kayaks!
It got cold last night but even more frigid temps are expected over the next few days. This big cold front is dipping so far south and wreaking havoc on our paddling. Reports tell us the temps will go as low as 28 degrees here which well exceeds our clothing limits.
Our goal today was to paddle to Spring Creek Launch and Campground. The route took us back into the Gulf and of course the winds were in our face the entire day. Paddle, edge, brace, repeat. We think this ranks as our toughest day so far.
Because of the low temps and high winds we are once again having to stay over an extra night. The semi-good news is we are in an old camper and not in tents. Heat is minimal inside and no hot water but we have a sink and working propane stove.
The owner, Mrs. Spears, drove us to a Dollar General store about 5 miles away so we could buy food for our stay. This way we don’t have to dip into our food supply for the next several days.
