Now alternate whenever you wish with Kokomo.
It's so fun.
Anyway, beside just being a super swell word to say, it's a river, and we canoe'd and/or Kayak'ed it.
That was fun to do as well.
The Pokomoke is a river in Maryland. It is full of Bald Cypress trees, and beaver, and river otters, which we did not see, but was cool to know and to keep an eye out for. We saw a turtle though, and wood duck nest boxes. We saw Addy, Kaya, Evren, and Greg's canoe crash into a bush.
That was funny.
'cause no one was hurt.
And there were many giggles and snorts.
I have never canoed much before, and Addy and I discovered that we loved it. So maybe it will be something that we try to do more of.
Did you know that the Pokomoke, has some more cool facts about it other than it's so fun to say over and over in your head name?
Yes, it does!
It has black water because of the amount of tannins it contains.
It also is the one of the deepest rivers in the world relative to it's width.
After our fun river tour, we headed to the park for a grill out, and an amazingly fun game called Blob that Jess posted all about today.
You need to play it, probably today if you have pool noodles, friends, and decent enough weather.
The kids also sang songs,
and played campy games.
Before we headed back to the center, we made another stop to the Delmarva Discovery Center.
We learned a little of the pokomoke culture and history,
No, he kind of does..
Trying to clam.
We bought some really great souvenirs at the gift shop, because that is really important to a few kids I know.
It was another really good day.
But like always, this was just our morning, we had quite a ways to go till our heads hit the pillow.
