As usual Cee issued a great challenge, Things That Are Smooth, so a quick look back in the archives to a blace I’d like to return to, Kayaking on the Great Dismal Swamp. I took these two photos on “The Feeder Ditch”, a 3 mile branch feeds water from Lake Drummond to the canal itself.
Yes, the water is dead flat! And is “blackwater”, the color of a strong Tea, caused by decaying leaves, etc. Paddling that day on the canal back in August of 2013, the smooth water and not a noise or bird call mande the kayak trip unearthly.
