Back to Denim Springs

Day 20-21
We headed back to Denim Springs, riding through the last remaining remnants of the previous day’s thunderstorms. It rained on us pretty hard, but we avoided the high winds and hail. When we got into Baton Rouge the main highway was flooded, and we had to take back roads to get to our friend’s house. We ended the evening with a crawfish boil, and the best crawfish I’ve ever eaten.

The next day we went out on the boat again. The rains and flooding made the river high, muddy, and full of floating sticks and a few logs. We still made it to a lake where we anchored 150 yards from shore on a sandbar. Ten or fifteen other boats were spread out along the bar and everyone was walking around in the waist deep water eating, drinking beer, and having fun. The only downside to the day was the nasty sunburn I brought home after being careless with the sun/water combination.
