Just before 10am, this March 9, 2008 morning, the temperature struggled to climb above 40 degrees as we launched from Willtown Bluff. Turning upriver, we paddled into the face of a 15 mph wind blowing down the river. Because the Edisto is wide and the straight, there was marginal white caps.
Ten paddlers from the Lowcountry Paddlers joined this club trip led by Bill & Michelle. About 30 minutes upriver we were able to paddle in the lee of the left bank.
This trip is just a tad over seven miles and we made it to Penny Creek Landing in time for lunch. We rode the tide all the way from Willtown to the Penny Creek Landing.
