A pat-on-the-back thank you to everyone who joined us at Mead's for the first Ijams' Canoe Paddle-About of the summer season.
Once a manmade hole in the ground—a quarry pit, one feet deep—today, it's a lovely, placid lake. Not very big, only 25-acres, but what it lacks in breadth, it makes up for in height and depth with the sheer beauty of a dramatic limestone cliff that rises 180 feet above the waterline.
For a manmade hole-in-the-ground, it's breathtaking.
The Ijams Paddle-Abouts are good outings for beginners or younger paddlers, even first-timers, just wanting to learn the basics of canoeing. They are good confidence builders!
And it's soooooooo peaceful.
Our next Ijams Canoe Paddle-About at Mead's celebrates Father's Day early in the morning (before the heat of the day sets in) Sunday, June 15. It's a great outdoor bonding experience for a father and child.
And another paddle-about on Saturday, June 21. To register call (865) 577-4717, ext. 119.
Thank you, Eliot for helping with the first.
