Devils Step Island - Sara

Three of us pitched our tents Friday afternoon on Devils Step Island. We paddled around the island and to the inlet at Fairview Campground. There were too many dark clouds so we couldn't see the full moon. 

Saturday morning Dick McClure and Marietta Poteet joined us. We paddled to Maple Bend Island for a break and then on to Owl Hollow Creek. We returned to Maple Bend Island for lunch and finished up at Devils Step Island. We were concerned about the weather report predicting thunderstorms but we didn’t encounter any rain. 

Saturday evening the campers Jean Breuer, Sara Pollard and Joan Hartvigsen had dinner at the Blue Gill Marina. The rain came down hard Saturday evening and we were not able to paddle after dinner. We had a visitor on the island - an armadillo we saw during the day and we think was shuffling around our tents at night. 

This was a joint activity with the Highland Rim chapter and we appreciate Joan Hartvigsen making the campsite reservations and leading the paddle.
