On Sunday I met up with some of the Robertson Scholars from the Duke-UNC Chapel Hill program. We went tubing on the Bogue Chitto River (pronounced bow-ga-chih-dah). After driving over lake Pontchartrain via the Causeway, through some countryside, we finally made it to Wayne's World Canoeing and Tubing. We rented our water vessels for $15 a person, and picked out a special inter tube for our cooler and set off for a lazy afternoon on a lazy river. It was a wonderful treat to stay cool on such a hot summer day (97 degrees!) We floated for about 5.5 hours. It was nice to catch up with old friends and meet new people.
