Another nice little paddle for 12 of us on the Rainbow River. This paddle was postponed from 2 weeks ago due to all the (greatly needed) rain we have been having and the day was overcast but not a drop of rain fell on us! It was great to get out on the water with a bunch of nice people, including an 8 year old on her first paddle and a guy with his strip-built kayak he was dusting off after a long hibernation. We saw lots of birds, swamp hibiscus, and we got to watch a couple of otters fishing, although I could not get close enough for good pictures of them.
We put in at K.P. Hole County Park, paddled up to the head spring, then coasted back down to the Blue Run take-out on CR 484, taking a lunch break at Gissy Spring.
