May 2011, day three

Thanks to the generosity of a boat club, we were able to spend last night indoors, and woke up to a bit of sunshine.  The rest of the day, however, was very wet. We had to wait out a thunderstorm under a bridge in West Virginia!

We are spending the night in the basement of a Catholic church in Bellaire, Ohio, after paddling about 35 miles.  Thank you to Father Dan for taking us in on such a rainy night!  Now, time for some dehydrated macaroni and cheese…yum.

May 2011, day two

We’ve completed our second day on this leg of the journey.

The second picture shows Ohio to the right, and West Virginia to the left.  We have now paddled in four states!

We pulled out of the river and had dinner at a restaurant called The Boathouse.  Life is Good!
