October 1, 2011 – Day 23 – 14.5 miles
Strong headwinds and two interviews made for a relatively short day. I met two television stations at the Twin Cities Marina where I had my first ever cheese curds. I knew that it would be a bad investment in calories and muscular stamina to paddle the large waters of Spring Lake in such winds. I stopped on an island right before the river started to widen and enjoy many hours of daylight on it’s sandy shore. Today is Saturday and their was a lot of boat traffic that continued on into the night. Regardless of the traffic, I’ll be here. It’s always a Saturday on the river to me.
