Many thanks Susan!
I have been looking for an event that Roy would really enjoy and I found one. He does so many things I enjoy, I wanted to return the pleasure. I checked the Texas Events Magazine and found the perfect Father’s Day gift.
Paddling the Forks
At the Martin Dies, Jr. State Park, just outside Jasper, Texas in the piney woods of deep east Texas, you can take a guided canoe trip from Bevilport (7:30am)paddle down the Angelina River, navigate through Bee Tree Slough and encounter the forks. This is where the Angelina and Neches Rivers come together. We will then paddle (I guess) back and arrive about 3:00pm.
When discussing with the lady at the park about the size of the canoe, she stated that a third person could ride in the center seat of the canoe, but would not be paddling……hehehe…… neither will the person in the front seat, ME.
Roy said it would be better if I just sat still..emphasis on still and took pictures.
AAhhhhhhhh a day on the river!
When discussing what to bring the park attendant said, lunch, snacks, water, sunscreen, bug spray and toilet paper. That last item made my day!
I found a nice Bed & Breakfast in Jasper and we are going to stay for 2 nights. There was only one restaurant listed besides fast food places….oh well, Roy is so excited, I will not complain.
He is an outdoor person, hunting and fishing and kayaking, etc.
Think of me on Saturday when the temperature is predicted at 100 degrees, paddling down the river with a smile on my face. Do you think my makeup will melt?
I know you all will be waiting impatiently to hear about this wonderful trip and see the pictures next week, assuming we don’t turn over and lose the camera.
Happy Father’s Day
Lots of Hugs,
