This site is about a canoe trip that Beckye and I made with our high-school
buddy and good friend , Cyrus Guynn, in 1958.
Cyrus borrowed a canoe and we put in on Rt. 17 at the feeder ditch to Lake
Drummond, which is near the community of Deep Creek in Chesapeake, Va. The
trip up the feeder ditch to the lake is 5 miles long. It is necessary to
portage a lock midway up the ditch.
Cyrus and me at the lock
Cyrus was a
smart, adventuresome guy whom I admired and emulated. He became a medical
Beckye. Still looks as good!

"Jerry, did you take a picture of my butt?" "No, dear."
