May 12th 2007
The weather today had the potential to go either way, so I opted for a shorter protected trip, and since I was looking at a shorter trip, I checked with Nick to see if he was up for it. Nick and I loaded up the Kayaks and headed for Munden Point Park, for a short trip up Oakum Creek. Forgetting that it is the beginning if strawberry season in Pungo, we had to deal with all the people on the road, going out to find the ultimate in fresh strawberries, I have no problem with the standard picked in the last couple days store bought berries.
The park was pretty crowded with baseball games going on at every diamond, and I guess the local geo-cache group was doing a group activity, because there was constant traffic to a point on the creek, and no further. Of course Nick was more then happy to let everyone know exactly where the cache was. Now I am not trying to ruffle any feathers here, but the thing I noticed about all these people going up the creek, was that none of them took the time to enjoy the scenery. Nick seemed very interested in whole treasure hunt aspect, so I guess we will be downloading some way-points, or maybe just the water ones, it seems looking at geocaching.com there is a cache at almost every launch site.
Well heading up the creek, there were plenty red-winged blackbirds flying around. and after we got passed the cache location, we started seeing a lot more animals, turtles snakes and gar in and along the water, and buzzards and heron overhead...
I was really proud of Nick as he made it the entire distance under his own power, with minimal whining...
P.S. If anyone knows of a good book on digital SLR photography, please let me know, because as you can see I am having a little difficulty with the new camera.
