We woke up this morning to some heavy storms, which postponed our start for the day. After we waited out the storm, the group enjoyed a breakfast of granola, fruit, and yogurt. Then we broke down the soaked tents and equipment and went to launch the first canoeing portion of the expedition. After the first three miles of paddling, the group stopped on a beach for lunch. Then the expedition continued with the last ten mile stretch of the day, where we passed the famous Jimmy Dean’s estate, the port of Richmond and Chesterfield Power Station, the largest coal power plant in the state.
|Wow, that's a lot of gear. Believe it or not, the team can make it all fit in their seven canoes!|

|What a great way to wind down from a long day's paddle!|
