It's Wednesday Morning and it's raining!
(That's new?)
There's thunder rumbling off to the west,
but not far enough off
to make me feel confident enough
to slide my kayak in to the river
for a morning paddle.

Thunder, lightning forecast:
70% chance.
Guess I'll drive today.
Bah.

To my Anonymous (BW) commenter:
HAPPY belated BIRTHDAY! (Aug 3rd).
Is it 40th or 41st?

After working
All night on Monday,
I went for a 3 hour paddle
yesterday morning.
I'd forgotten just how
magnificent that feels.

Beautiful.

I hope the morning time on the water was serene.

Hi Rel. Love the photo of the lighthouse framed by the trees. Was that where you were?

Is there music to go with that? Like singing in the rain... but different?

Glad you are wary of the storms.
Glad that you go out and do this when you can.

I so love lighthouses. I love what they represent symbolically and literally. Safety in a storm.

My friend wanted me to go kayaking in the Chicago River. I had no problem with the kayaking, but a big problem with the prospect of possibly capsizing in the Chicago River. Yuck!

I'm glad you enjoyed your paddling!

I'm not a fan of lightning when I'm on water either. I do love that lighthouse pic, though.
