The cypress swamp that lines the Roanoke reminds me of a mangrove swamp, almost (see photo at left). We spotted several species of duck and listened to the Barred Owls call to one another across the river. It was a hot day, and drifting at lunch we found that the Coronas never tasted better. The camp platform had plenty of room (see photo above). After camp was set up, we paddled across the Roanoke to the channel and had a swim to cool off.
Thanks for the work that goes into making these platforms and walkways open for everyone to enjoy. It really opens up an area that was lost to those who like to turn off the TV and radio and enjoy some quiet.
