Tivoli to Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge
(Almost)
23 July 2005

We decided to paddle from Tivoli to under and past the Kingston-Rhinecliff Bridge.

We left Tivoli and headed south. All was going smooth.  We stopped for lunch just past South Tivoli Bay.  While sitting there having our lunch we noticed the wind picking up and the chop kicking up.  By the time we finished lunch there were some white caps showing.  We decided to head back to Tivoli.  The bridge would have to wait for another day.

The wind was blowing faster right in our faces making the paddle back harder.  We noticed that we were the only ones on the river and think we understood why.  If it doesn't kill you it makes you stronger.  Right?  We must be getting much stronger!
