Kayaking on the Flint River

Yesterday after yard selling with my mom (pictures of my finds to come soon) Keith and I loaded up the truck made some great sandwiches and drove the 45 minute drive to the Flint River Outdoor Center. The location we kayaked is in Thomaston, Georgia. We went to the outdoor center paid a small fee and they loaded up our kayaks and took us to the drop off point which made the trip down the river 5 miles. They say it should take about 3 hours to do it but it took us around 4 to 4 1/2 hours. Time doesn't really matter when you are having fun though. We actually were dropped off in Sprewell Bluff State Park and started out journey their. Here are some of the pictures of us having fun and being a kid.
I would like to say THANK YOU to the nice man and his two kids who inspired us to stop and have some fun floating down this little rapid. This family had their own canoe and we pretty much stayed in eye sight of them our whole trip. They were from Pike county and we had a great time interacting and talking with them.
Our kayaks taking a break while we play in the water a little.

Me, floating down a rapid that I managed not to go down when I was in my kayak. Somehow I went another route and got stuck and had to bounce up and down to get unstuck. So I had to go down it why not without the kayak?

Keith's turn...

And a picture of us right before we got out to play. This was taken by the nice man. I wish so badly that I would have gotten some pictures of him and his kids and emailed them to him. I have got to start doing what I feel I should do.
