“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

-Henry David Thoreau, Walden

We decided to take the kayaks down the Roanoke River and camp overnight. The entire paddle distance totaled 14.97 miles of wonderful flowing water.

We found a great campsite about halfway through the paddle. The site was ripe with poison ivy that was only about ankle-high, mosquitos and riddled with the easiest harvest of earthworms that I've ever seen.

Sleeping in the hammock was a delight and Dad had a rough night due to not having a decent pillow. I think a Klymit inflatable pillow may soon be at our doorstep dressed in an Amazon Prime box!

We saw fifteen or more bald eagles on our trip but failed to get ANY of them in decent footage. We'll get lucky and get a good shot of one soon.

Thanks for coming along with us on some of the best camping in North Carolina and God bless!
