The day started with breakfast of English muffins, bagels and various cream cheeses.  The boys planned a Sunday service, I just love these!  There's something so special about a group of young men praising God while surrounded by God's beauty!  This day we were on the river for 3 hours.  We got a late start so we didn't get off the river until later than other years.  We found two large floats today.  Logan and Adam got pulled by the current into some trees.  The water was really deep there and nobody could swim over to get them.  Many, many rope throws by Logan and finally the rope came back to Scotty and they were able to pull the canoe out of the tree.  Fun times with the Boy Scouts.  So much fun that they always sleep on the way home!

We paddled for about 7 hours, put in the river at 9:00.  It was a beautiful day and the boys had lots of fun.  We had a lunch break on a gravel bar and of course, the boys floated in the water.  I took my kayak and the boys took turns in it.  There were a few tipped canoes, but as usual - great fun!
