Family paddle trip
« on: April 30, 2018, 07:22:11 AM »
My son and his wife , wanted to interoduce their 3 month old girl Remmy,  to their outdoor life style.   Her  dad went along with the kids and myself.  We put in the Sante Fe River on US 27,  and paddled the two and a half hours down to Rum Island.
Family in a 40 year old Grumman aluminum canoe.  Glen and I in kayaks.   Easy trip. Stopped at Poe springs and at another little spring to swim and rest.  The baby enjoyed the trip.  She even got a little nap into her busy schedule.

    Far too few trips like that posted up.

True 'dat. :thumbsup:    Truth be told, there are probably plenty of us that take short, afternoon or morning hikes, paddle trips, etc. that we consider too mundane or unremarkable to even bother posting, but almost everyone here would enjoy seeing or hearing about them, nonetheless. :)

what made this a more interesting trip,  was that my three month old Granddaughter went along.  Her first canoe trip.  :)   
Not everyone takes an infant that young on a paddle.

You guy's should be posters of child safety, with a vest and umbrella. Excellent trip!!!!

I agree we need more sharing. Although I haven't even been out back with the dogs lately. Slacking...
