|South Atlanta High Boys and Girls Club went kayaking on the Chestatee River near Dahlonega. We drove up, and got on the river after lemonade and a snack. All of the teens had fun figuring out how to steer their kayaks. We had a few capsizes but given the heat, falling in the water was pleasant. We had the opportunity to see at least two snakes - one a copperhead and several turtles and fish. After a stop for a snack on a sandbar everyone braved the two rapids. We then got to the takeout, rode the shuttle van, and after another snack, headed home.
