One turbine running at 100% – ideal conditions for a run down the Green. Unfortunately, hundreds of others, mainly on inner tubes, also thought so. Despite the crowds, Bob and I still had a good run. Dodging the float bubbas was not unlike my daily commute on I-85. With the fast river conditions, crowds, and approaching thunderstorm, we finished the run in record time – 1.5 hours. The standing waves were excellent, and we got thoroughly soaked. It was still a blast, although we may need to find a new place a little less crowded.
I got back home early, which was a good thing since we had received an invitation for a bon voyage party for our friends Tim and Nina, who will be spending the next year in France. Dinner was a quick but gluttonous affair at Flat Rock Grill, starting with rich she-crab soup (which I wondered if you could really distinguish from he-crab soup) and ending with rich cheese cake, with Caesar salad, filet mignon, salmon, and grouper rounding out the middle. We waddled out the door then were off to our party. All in all, a busy but satisfying day.
