The weather was much warmer on Wednesday, than the last hike I did last Saturday on the Floris V-pad.
The Floris V-pad has been on my “to do list” since I found part of it while hiking close to Oud-Alblas this last summer.
I started at the Schiphol Airport via the train to Schinnen located in the heart of Limburg.
We are pretty normal people, my hubby and I. My hubby likes to think we are boring, let me re-phrase that, he is boring, he knows I am not boring.
The day was overcast and threatening rain as I pulled into a gravel parking lot. In front of me I saw a line of canons facing the waterfront. In the distance I could see Fort Sumter isolated in the water off the coastline.
I have been reading the book Between The Waters, by Larry Luukkonen this fall. It details the northwest trails and the portages from Lake Superior at the mouth of the St Louis River to Big Sandy Lake and the entrance into the Mississippi River. The first major portage for loaded canoes was the Grand Portage.
I woke to a light but steady breeze coming off the ocean and when I crossed the bridge to Sullivan’s Island where our session was to start I could see white caps hitting the beach.
