Trying Out the New Inflatable Boats

That’s me paddling near the Roanoke River bank.

Sunday turned out to be a good day to give a test run to my two inflatable kayaks, this one on the Roanoke River, which is slowly reaching normal (low) levels, following heavy spring rain.

My friend Susan, who had never paddled an inflatable, and I put in at Wolf Creek and floated down to the river without incident, except that the river was blocked with debris at two different points and we had to make our way around it.

The boats did well. I can’t wait to get them on some faster water and see if they respond as well as they did in the calmer river.
