Floating Docks and Cabins in a Watery World Bartram Canoe Trail's Lawrence Specker recounts a recent visit to one of cabins on the Bartram Canoe Trail down in the Mobile Tensaw Delta.  I set out with the family once on an attempted overnight trip to the Jug Lake platform. It was spring. The scenery was beautiful, but the water was too high. We shouldn't have been out there, especially with elementary-age kids. We got stranded and had to be rescued. I'm dying to go back and complete such an adventure.  But not sure if I'll ever convince my wife to accompany me.  Check out the story and accompanying pictures.
