Monday, 8 January, 2007

Leigh and I didn't go kayaking on Saturday because even though the rain eventually stopped as day dawned, the ensueing foggy mist made the prospect of being on the river less than desireable. The fog lifted by 10 AM. However, the wind that lifted it also whipped up a white-capped roil which discouraged us from proceeding.

Yesterday was 50 F. with calm water and clear sky. So we enter the river in our kayaks at around 1300. The water felt like it was maybe 45 degrees. Not bad, considering it was the 7th of January, and there is usually ice fishing going on in the bay.

It was a great paddle, and we were out for a couple of hours. When we got back to the house we finished off a perfect day with expressos, some port, and a board of assorted cheeses, cold cooked chicken and a glass of red wine.
Gliding, calm water
Quiet relaxation fills
Mind and body subtly

Sounds divine - and exciting - and exhilerating - and what a perfect way to end the day.

Hi Rel, too damn cold for me. Are you a masochist or something? Lol!

Liked your post on kissing. Can't remember my first real one - kiss, that is. I'll have to dredge the deep dark recesses of my memory and see what I can come up with.

Take care

Sounds like you had a great day.....Ive never been kayaking but it sounds like fun. I really would like to try white water rafting....my son and his wife go and they always have fun. But then I think of Deliverance.....and those toothless men who wanna make you squeal like a pig and I think staying home is a safe alternative!!! lol

this warm weather is a little disconcerting, but it sure is great to comfortably work-out outside in January. It sounds like a perfect day.

4. Stop going home with ugly men.
5. Stop dropping to the floor every time I hear the word "hoe down".

I like to canoe and I have been kayaking once. Being alone in the kayak makes me nervous which is why I prefer the canoe.
Anyway, sounds like you are quite active and living on some good fuel:coffee, wine, and yummy food.
