Laurel taking a well deserved nap after a full day of whitewater boating and two successful dam portages. We have five more to go. We might give the Big Island portage a try this evening. There is a factory there and if the plant worker's wont help us then it is a two mile road walk. Hitchhiking with a canoe???
Today we were joined by Ryan's father Fred and George Bowles for a great run down the Balcony Falls section of the James. Thankfully our canoe stayed upright although we did get a good bit of water in it a few times. Fred also gave us a very needed ride around the Cushaw Dam. The portage around the dam was fine but the rapids right below looked a bit too difficult for our canoe laden with camping equipment.
