NotesThis spot is awesome! Regular lefty charc, I was initiating steep just far enough away from the rock to miss it. Slam dunk down, medium violent entry, then start spinning and it\s good! Deep dark roaming. I only spent one session here after 3 at Bermuda, but I\ll definItely be coming back for more. This spot alone is worth driving several hours. Leftys!

NotesWow--this day was special. Bermuda was again weak so I stayed there relatively briefly before moving on to Simple Pleasures; where it all started for me some years back now. This spot remains to be fickle and until recently was never really good to me in the Whirld. I spent probably a half hour here before things started to come together, but come together they did. I had lots of rides on the 10 second range and then toward the end of the session two rides that about went off the radar--perhaps the longest travel rides I have ever had. Both of them I came up close to parallel with the beach on river right--you have to fight a little initially, but if you can get past this you can drop and it gets like Smoothy-smooth--this was by far the best day I have ever had at Simple Pleasures! Notes on gauge reading--it was taken from usgs online and the cfs was 1770.

NotesDuring the downriver squirt competition for Potomac Fest a couple of us were waiting in the river right eddy at the bottom of Simple Pleasures where the normal dumping spot is. After being bored waiting for the rest of the competitors to come down a couple of us starting goofing around with a seam that would come and go with the surging currents. Much to my amazement there were several rides here that were head under. One was deep enough to watch other squirters floating above. It was quite ironic that my best mystery of the day took place in a locale not used for either the Downriver or the Eddyline squirt comps.
