You can Kayak/Canoe on Lake Davidson!

Davidson, NC    Did you know we have amazing public access to kayak and canoe on Lake Davidson thanks to Davidson Lands Conservancy, a grant from REI and the cooperation of the Town of Davidson and Davidson Day School.   This group of thoughtful entities built and maintain an access trail and canoe/kayak launch on Lake Davidson.

The payoff for your 900 foot hike in.  Great views.

Lake Davidson Nature Preserve

Davidson Watercraft Rack Leasing Program

Arborists have identified the trees!

For a full time kayak/canoe rack space you need to enter the lottery in November.

The entrance on Jetton Street is clearly marked behind the Davidson Day athletic field.  Worth a walk to check out or carry in your kayak.  It’s great to live in Davidson and have this amazing outdoor space.  Secret:  The bass fishing is really good on Lake Davidson from a Kayak!   Use a shaky tail.

I checked with Davidson Park & Rec and they are full for rack space this year.

Davidson Teen #1 in USA

Davidson, NC      Davidson resident and tennis phenom Nick Mangianpane finished 2017 ranked #1 in the U.S. in the boys 12 and under age division.  He trains with Bruce Hawtin at the River Run Tennis Academy where he started when he was about 8 years old.

IMG_7258

In 2017, he won a silver ball in doubles at the Fall Indoor National Championships in NY. This was a 2nd place finish at a national championship which was pretty cool (kids think getting a gold, silver or bronze ball, which is what you win at a national championship, is pretty exciting). He was excited to earn a coveted ball since there are only a few opportunities a year, but silver was oh so close to a gold!

He then went to the Winter National Championships in Tucson in December and played against some very tough competitors but achieved the goal of winning a gold ball in doubles. That was a great way to ring in 2018. His final event of 12’s was the Adidas Easter Bowl in Indian Wells California at the end of March. This followed the pro tournament in Indian Wells. He won another gold ball in doubles, a really exciting achievement.

IMG_7390

Also last year he represented the U.S. in a match play event vs. a Canadian Junior team at the Billie Jean King Tennis Center in NY.  His team was comprised of 4 boys and 4 girls. They played both singles and doubles.

Several weeks ago he went to the new USTA National Training Center in Lake Nona, FL (Orlando basically) where he joined 3 other boys in a match play event vs a team from Japan. He slept and trained at the national training center for the week, which was really exciting because he got to work out in the gym and stay in the Lodge at the facility, which meant he got to see the other pros staying and training there.

He has just turned 13, so he has moved into the 14 and under age group, which will be an entirely new, but exciting challenge.

Best Appetizer in Davidson

Davidson, NC    There are so many good restaurants in town that selcting the best of anything is tough, but the Taphouse Sliders at Flatiron on Main are outstanding.  The balance of the excellent beef, jam, cheese and pickles is perfect.  Add them to another of the excellent apps on the menu and you’ve got a great meal at the bar to share.

TAPHOUSE SLIDERS … *11
Wagyu Blend, Bacon-Onion Jam, American Cheese & Pickles
* FYI: WAGYU BEEF
(和牛 Wagyū “Japanese cow”) any of several breeds of cattle,
most desired of which is genetically predisposed to intense
marbling. The meat from such cattle is known for its quality, and
commands a high price.

Music Review – Mandolin Orange – Great Band out of Chapel Hill

Davidson, NC     We first saw Mandolin Orange when they opened for the Avett Brothers this past New Year’s Eve in Raleigh.  They were really good.  Since then their music seems to be popping up all over.  Great southern sound with mandolin and nice harmonies.  Wildfire is a great song.  The lead singer’s voice is unique and really adds feel to the song.   The harmonies are awesome.  Please listen to Wildfire below on a YouTube link.

I looked at their tour and they are doing a FREE show at the National Whitewater Center May 27th.  We’ll be there.  Hope you will too.

Calling All 5 & 6 Year Olds – Get Dad to Form your Tribe for Fall.

Lake Norman, NC      I just returned from Spring Longhouse at Camp Harrison in Boomer, NC  where I spent an awesome weekend with my 9 year old son and our tribe The Running Wolves.  It’s hard to describe how great Y-guides is for dads and kids to spend time together and “make memories.”  If you have a 5 or 6 year old please look into the program and consider joining.  You will not regret the bond you form with your child, the new friends you will make and the fun you will have.

image2

Tribes of braves and princesses get together throughout the year for meetings or activities organized by the program.  Some highlights are Princess Date Night, Camp-out at BB&T Ball Park after a game, polar bear plunge, Christmas Parade, and, of course Fall and Spring Longhouses.   Kids learn about service too through opportunities to visit Ada Jenkins Center and its Food Pantry and giving back at Classroom Central.

Promotional YouTube Video – Pretty good

Moms.  It is OK to help your husband sign up and form a tribe, but you will eventually be jealous of all the fun your son or daughter is having as they make great memories with their dad.   I have had a tribe where I knew dads and we formed it and I have had a tribe where we formed at the YMCA information meeting.  Either way, your kids will cherish their time in Y-guides and the friends they make.

If you’ve done Y-guides in the past, please tell young families you know about Y-guides and how worthwhile and fun it is.

The Best Chicken Sandwich in the Davidson Area – Burger is Outstanding too!

Update – Open Lunch M-F 10:30-3:30

Davidson, NC    One of my co-workers mentioned that this place had the best chicken sandwich in the area so I had to check it out and, yes, it is true.

IMG_1513

Located next to Pine Lake Prep off of 115 in a converted gas station is LKN2Go.  (formerly the Buttery and Beanery)  Everything is made to order on the grill when you order so it took a few minutes.  I had the Mushroom and Swiss Chicken Sandwich.  For $7.95 it came with seasoned fries and a drink.  It was excellent on a toasted Brioche Roll.

IMG_1512

You will be surprised how nice the restaurant is inside, the quality of the food and the cooks.

 

 

The burgers looks amazing too.  Next time.

Great Horned Owl Released in Davidson

 

Davidson, NC      Davidson residents, and Raptor Center supporters, Greg and Marcy Murphy partnered with the Carolina Raptor center on Saturday April 28 to release a Great Horned Owl back into the wild by the Greenway near River Run.

The Owl was turned in locally with a head injury and nursed back to health at the center.  Davidson is considered an ideal location for the release because of the tree canopy.

These owls are territorial and not common locally so the hope is that it will remain in this area.

You may be aware of the Raptor Center.  They accept injured raptors of all types (eagles, hawks, owls, etc.) that have been injured or are in failing health.  When possible, they nurse them back to health and this culminates in releasing them back into the wild.  They provide great educational programs for kids.

Carolina Raptor Center

So keep your eyes on the trees when you walk the greenway.
