The Batteau “Fine Creek Mill” was parked by Ferndale Park beside the Appomattox River near Matoaca. The rain was getting stronger as the day went on, however, the Friends of the Lower Appomattox River (FOLAR) made the best of the situation. FOLAR had food vendors and many different river groups set up beside the pond behind the pavilion building. They even had a nice buggy with seats pulled by an ATV giving rides down the 1.5 mile towpath. The canal had a good amount of water in it. The bridge leading from the park across the canal to the tow-path was named after Nancy Trout! A musical group made up of men from the area played civil war style music which was very very nice!
