There was a cove just north of the 14 bridge that had caught my attention. I glanced at it on the drive in and it looked like a nice calm cove to hang out in, so I decided to hit that on the way back.
For being an impromptu trip, this little get away was a great paddle. If you are ever in this area, check out Beaver Cove and pass under the Metra bridge. It is worth it.
