Caney Fork and Happy Hollow

This past weekend we had absolutely nothing to do so we were thankful when our friends, Chad and Katelyn, invited us to go canoeing down the Caney Fork river! We put in by the Center Hill Dam (which was generating at the moment). So of course there was a really good current carrying us down the river. well at that rate we would have made it to our car in like 30 minutes. So we decided to stop and eat lunch on this grassy but yet still watery knoll i guess you would call it. So after we ate and the boys fished for awhile, and after we had lost track of time and our senses apparently we were sitting in our canoes ON TOP of the grassy knoll because the dam had quit generating water and there was no longer a current or much water. :) So we drug our canoes back into the water and began on our 4 hour canoe ride. We had Chad and Jonas fishing, going to the bathroom, asking us every 10 minutes if we wanted peanut butter and crackers, Chad with noises, cows, muskrats, squirrels, herrings, and of course fish. The last 45 minutes or hour of our ride the boys decided it was the girls turn to paddle so me and Katelyn(tank 1 and 2) pulled our boys to the Happy Hollow. We had a blast and were so thankful to get our 4 hour 1.5 mile canoe ride to the happy hollow over with. ;)
