As the canoe slipped in the water we quickly realized we were in for a long trip as the river flow was extremely slow. As we paddled down river the area was amazingly quiet with a few turtle and crane sightings. As we crossed under Davis Ford Rd more and more fishing boats started showing up, with only a few giving us trouble with their wake.
Once we neared Fountainhead Regional Park, the water got a little choppy due to all the water traffic, but cleared up once we pulled away.
We pulled the canoe out at Lakeridge Marina. The trip was very uneventful and quite a workout in a canoe! Total trip length was 10.3 miles and 3 hours.
