Trip Log - Final Day

The Final Day

After hot showers, clean laundry and dinner we all sat around our last campfire and went over maps and plans for the last day. We all said good night and settled in for a good night's sleep. Just after midnight Steph and I woke up to the sound of raccoons raiding our camp.

Day 17 Riverside Park to Matagorda Bay Park - 27 miles

As soon as we put out the campfire and walked up the short, steep trail from the beach to the campsite, Steph and I realized just how cold it was away from the warmth of the fire. Our fingers and toes were stinging before we could get to the tents. I jumped in and zipped up and tried to snuggle in but I couldn't get warm even in the sleeping bag.

Day 9 Big Webberville to Tahitian Village - 34 miles

It was still pretty dark when I first woke up this morning. I heard Stephanie rustling around and rolled over realizing that I needed to get up but I wasn't quite ready to move yet. We had to get moving since we had a long day ahead. Everyone seemed to be moving slow. Mike sent me a text to remind me that the time had changed so I texted back "I know but no one told the sun that!" "Good one" he texted back. We get up when the sun comes up and got to bed when it goes down. The fog was lifting off the water.
