Day 10 & 11: Relaxing & Paddling the Connecticut

Packed up camp at Little Averill. Hurricane Earl finally showed his face and the lake was windy with rain storms blowing through quickly. Still that didn't stop Jasper from spending most of the morning in the lake. We went up to breakfast buffet at Jackson's Lodge--holy cow: pecan praline crepes, creme brulee french toast, seafood newberg, poached eggs, country potatoes, and plenty more for the carnivores. Again stuffed beyond capacity. The rain and wind continued outside so we spent a nice lazy day at the Beehive, and Justin had a visit with Nana. Homemade pizzas, wine, and a movie made for a relaxing evening at home.

Woke up to sunshine at the Beehive. Checked the weather and it looked like it would hold so we shuttled the canoe and kayaks to Canaan, VT (or is it West Stewartstown, NH...depends what side of the river you put in on). It was a nice smooth paddle down the CT river, with a little head wind and alternating sunshine and shade. We had a picnic stop on a sandbar, and then paddled the rest of the way. In all about 3 hours on the river. Home for dinner tonight, with Hylie and Mario joining us.

Tomorrow is our last full day in New Hampshire before we hit the road again. Not sure yet how we'll spend it, but any day on vacation is a nice one.
