GA Day 10 - the End

Our last 13 miles of the trip today turned out to be the hardest. Stiff headwinds and contrary tides had us working hard for our last miles.

We paddled under 3 bridges to Tybee Island which was more than we'd seen on our previous days combined.

Winds were so strong today paddling close to shore forced us to paddle under the residential docks along the way.

It was a great trip, interesting and different scenery, and we met some great folks. Thanks Nancy for wanting to do the trip with me, your company made it all the more fun. Thanks Dan for putting us up in Tybee tonight, no more tenting.

Time to go home, recharge, and start planning the next adventure. My friend Lee tells me there is a tidal bore up on the Bay of Fundy waiting for us later this year :)

Stumbled across your blog. Jumped to the bottom of the page which for me was day 3 of your Georgia paddle. I'll go back and read it through. I liked your writing style and your adventurous spirit.
I'll try again. The wife and I have been paddling since the early 80's. Sometimes around St. Simons so your trip easily caught my attention. We try to be fair-weather day trippers. Perhaps you will inspire us to move slightly out of our comfort zone.
I'll let you know when I'm done with your most recent adventure and thanks for posting.
