A great day to be out on the water and what a way to spend it

My Report:

A beautiful day out. water level was up due to the showers in AL. Did not run into any sandbars. There is a tricky spot on the first leg that requires some skill to get around a huge wood pile. Not too bad just stay to the far left. the first leg took just under 2 1/2 hrs to complete. We were only planning on the first leg but finished way sooner than planned so decieded to move cars and do the second leg as well. Second leg was easier than the first. still alot of tree logs under water to navigate but not difficult. brought the dogs with me and they enjoyed it. second leg took about 2 hrs. overall a great trip.

first leg 11.6 miles
second leg 8 miles
