Great Coharie Trip - 2 Sept.
- Today we had a real enjoyable float on the Great
Coharie paddling the 8 miles from Wright's Bridge to
Lisbon Bridge in Sampson County, NC. Rain threatened and
we encountered a few sprinkles of rain with thunder
rumbling in the background but no real downpours. There
were 20 paddlers on this trip paddling in 15 boats
including a variety of canoes and kayaks. Paddlers included
Don & Sandy Meece, trip leaders, Bonnie Parker,
Cynthia O'Brien, Marshall Goodman, Frank Dupin, Charles
West and guest Robin Achille, Marsha Tai, Larry & Sue
Yarger, Jim Depree, Marshall & Charlotte Thompson, Jim
Johnson, Rudolph Floyd, Bob Guckel, Cleon Lanier, Craig
Smith, and Chris Raper. We had a nice sandbar for an
enjoyable lunch break and group photo sessions. We then
stopped at Fred and Virginia Broadwell's river house for
a visit near the takeout and the Broadwells shared
hiking sticks for a hike through the Broadwell's nature
trail which was memorable with the statues, walkways,
bridges, and various plants and their hospitality is
appreciated. If you wish to write the Broadwells thanking
them, their address is 401 Vann Dr., Clinton, NC 28328.
The trip was real enjoyable with no one turning over
and no major obstacles in the river.
