SALOONS ALONG THE POTOMAC – Carl Sandburg - "The Washington monument pointed to a new moon for us and a gang from over the river sang ragtime to a ukelele. The river mist marched up and down the Potomac, we hunted the fog-swept…" Canoeing the Potomac River from Jack's boat house under Key Bridge all the way to Chain Bridge and back is a memory of calm solitude and rebel-rousing. About 8 miles round trip – often Friday evenings, a friend, Pete and I would rush down to the dock after work for our weekly workout paddle. The rousing festive part came after racking our canoe to the rented slip, ($10.00 a month) followed by the rest of the night walking along M Street in Georgetown. Touring M Street involved noisy imbibing across the night – hopping in and out of popular saloons crowded with friendly Georgetown U Nurses.
QUIET TWILIGHT – The M Street part of those Friday nights certainly provided a lot of bustling excitement, and festive fun, however the canoeing part of the evening hours remains serene in my bones with a lifelong memory of smooth, tranquil river paddling. Our quiet twilight canoeing brought each other whispering stroke commands as we navigated stealth-like, using Indian strokes, J strokes, and Cruising strokes. Our quiet, peaceful canoeing was rarely broken except by an occasional Scull Crew Coxswain barking the cadence as passing by.
