Owl's Creek- They Came From the Night

Yes, it got dark out on Owl's Creek. With flashlights duct-taped to our bows, we set a leisurely pace as the sun went down. The buzzwords for the paddle came to us as it got dark. FIREFLIES and the ORANGE GUY.

We had reached the end of one creek behind Shadowlawn, and were returning to Rockefeller's, when we rounded one corner and were presented with an awesome sight- a huge orange moon being "unveiled" as the clouds moved away. The orange guy (man in the moon, get it?) elicited a "wow" from everyone.

By the time we headed west down another creek, it was getting quite dark, and we were treated to a very cool light show. Hundreds of fireflies were blinking in the woods to either side of us! Another "wow" moment.

Finally it was time to head back to the ramp and take-out.
