Weekend on the Chattahoochee River

Associate with well-mannered persons and your manners will improve. Run around with decent folk and your own decent instincts will be strengthened.
-- Stanley Walker

This past weekend I took a 2 day trip in my canoe with about 15 other people down the Chattachoochee River. I took a girlfriend with me and had a blast showing her the way of the water. We camped on private property that had a beautiful log cabin I have seen before in my dreams. It looked so warm and cozy. They built a massive bon fire that mesmerized me throughout the evening and warmed me along the way. We visited 2 different water falls and ate our lunch on a different island each day. I noted that usually when people are out doing what they love and sharing a common interest, the end results are those being more helpful and kind. It was a refreshing weekend and one that will carry me over until the next trip.

On a scale of 1 to 10...I'd say this trip was a 10.
I'm glad you had a good trip on the water.

I'm glad to know someone is taking advantage of the great fall weather to enjoy a couple of days on the river.  Reading about your trip brings back memories of my family's float trips this summer.  Glad you had a great trip, and I'm sure your friend loved it with such a great companion to share the trip.
