We had been camping at Fort Wadsworth at the NPS campground we paddled down the day before and then spent the night. We got a tour of the main fort which was really interesting. Its a shame it hasn't been used for something. Its just slowly decomposing over the years. Most of it is actually underground to protect it.

It was still a bit cold on the weekend, even though it was in the 90s a few days the week before. An overcast and windy day on Saturday made it even cooler.
The trip back was great because we had a strong wind that was almost directly behind us the whole way.
We invented a new game called "Sponge Slap" I don't recommend it - cold wet bailing sponge to the face.
I took the Tide Race down and the paddled the double on the way back. I used my Greenland paddle the whole time because its easier on my arm. I wore a brace and didn't seem to have any ill effects even after a few hours.
Truth: Sometimes you have to walk.
