Joe, Allison, Kit, Lucas, Barrett and I made a half run on our way out of town. I really liked the level, lots of play spots along the way. I tried to play all I could and flipped around plenty. S-Turn went smoothly for everyone. At Pillow I ran a nice safe line. Everyone else was paddling great. The day was simply gorgeous. I kept going back into surf the wave at Sandy Bottom until I finally swam out of it. And a long swim it was at that. After that, I played it a little more cautiously, plus the grip on my borrowed paddle had peeled the skin off the insides of my thumbs. So when I got to pinball, I hit the creek line. What a great day. Great crew. Great ending to a nice weekend.
