Not a whole lot to report. We paddled in headwinds again. Not as bad as yesterday but still taxing on the body.
Days like this make you feel like you’re paddling in concrete. Stiff, gooey, thick concrete. Both of us are complaining about shoulder aches and pains. We usually start and end the day taking plenty of Vitamin I.
Our goal today was to make Gifford Point. After 20 miles we pulled into a pretty dismal site. Overgrown, weed covered, and dotted with tree stumps. Virtually no where to put a tent. This was a stark contrast to the other spoil islands we passed throughout the day. They looked pristine.
We decided to move on and found what appears to be a utility access area right on the water. A nice clearing is perfect for the tents. So home it is.
Getting dark now and the temps are dropping. Better get some calories in our bodies before we begin to shiver.
