The rest of the weekend was spent canoeing down the Delaware River with a group of my friends from Philly and NYC.
Here are I am with my tent mates after successfully pitching my new tent. Simon picked it out (sadly he had to work and couldn't come camping) he made sure it had a good rain fly on it. I must admit I'm glad he took the time to find a tent with a good rain fly. The second night on the river we got a huge thunder storm around 9:30 and night, but we stayed dry as a bone in our super rain fly tent.
We also saw lots of diverse river wild like. My friend mike found a millipede at the first campsite, and there was a muskrat swimming around the island we camped on. At the second campsite we found two black snakes and on our way down the river the last day we encountered a water snake and some box turtles.
It wouldn't be camping without a camp fire and s'mores. Even if it did take us the best part of two hours ot get the campfire going.
It also wouldn't have been the Third Annual Delaware Camping Trip with out the Third Annual Delaware boat race.
Here are the top four boats (mine sunk, better luck next year). The first place boat was the blue catamaran, second place was the destroyer, third place was the cardboard master piece made by Jason, and the fourth place boat was the NYC gangs boat.
It was a great weekend, but I was glad to be home to my shower, bed and the hubs.
