DAY 2 - Journal Entry: Sunday, August 8, 2004

by Micheline Dionne, Ground Crew & Kevin Dionne, K4C Team Leader

Our first morning was a cool one. Fortunately, we had hot coffee and oatmeal to warm us up. Most of us were up by 6:30 a.m., and the late risers were awakened by Paparon's "rooster call" at 7:00. Paddlers were in the water by 9:00 a.m. and arrived at Seeley's Bay for lunch by noon hour.

Kayakers set out from Seeley's Bay energized from a wonderful lunch. The threat of rain was in the air as the first kayak hit the water. All participants arrived for the lunch with one decorated kayak -- balloons adorned the kayak of first-time participant George Tsarouhas, who celebrated his 29th birthday today.

The kayakers enjoyed a scenic adventure, portaging Jones Falls and arriving at their overnight destination Davis Locks around 5:00 p.m. As the kayakers approached the last lock of the day, the ground crew cheered them on.

The evening turned out beautiful. The ground crew had all the kayakers' tents up and supplies unloaded. As the kayakers unwinded, fajitas were prepared by Ann Dionne and company. With one last "Happy Birthday" and cake for George, and a few nightcaps, the K4C team ended the second day.
