Loxahatchee River

Tom, Dick and all of the Gillespies went canoeing on the Loxahatchee River from River Bend Park to Jonathan Dickinson State Park.

The trip took a total of four hours, including a lunch stop at Trapper Nelson's for yummy PB&J sandwiches.

Dylan sat in the middle of Chip and Laurie's canoe, and I'm not sure, but I think that Dick and Laurie were racing to see who could finish first!

The scenery was a highlight with dense foliage, cypress knees and the jungle-ish surroundings with narrow passageways. Dick was irritated by a group of Boy Scouts who had no idea what they were doing - just flailing around in the river with no instruction or direction.

Dylan's favorite part was ramming the log and getting stuck. I guess getting unstuck was a ton of fun!
