Anniversary Week!


This week is our anniversary, so Bill always takes this week off. Of course we plan on paddling as much as possible but we needed some new gear for Bill's kayak so we ended up at EMS and they had a sale on kayaks, not good;)

So, after hemming and hawing and talking myself out of getting one, Bill told the guy to bring it out and I have a new kayak. She is longer and sleeker so faster on the water, a big plus. She has a padded seat and padded leg braces, very comfortable and makes bracing in the rougher waters, a lot easier. There is a drop down skeg so I can paddle straight and not have to adjust my course constantly, so I have to admit, I love it and I love paddling in it.

We went out yesterday for a trial run and I got used to how she feels in the water and I paddled for two hours and didn't get tired out.


Today we went from our town beach, nice and cloudy so it kept us cool. I guess this sign is for those who can read, feathered friends can do what they want.

We paddled under the bridge and rested on the other side, then headed back. I set my trails today to see how far we went and it was 3 miles one way, so we did six miles today, not bad for my second time out, this year. I think a better boat was a really good idea. Poor Bill has to slog along in his old one, but he has more muscle, so it evens us out;)


To top the day off, we had a nice cookout with the kids and of course my sweet grandson. They put the new outfit on him, that I bought and realized that the number on it was 28, he was born on the 28th, so that was funny that I would pick that out before he was born.

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and enjoyed time with their families.

Happy anniversary! A new kayak is exciting. Husband got a gel seat and paddle grips for his. I have plenty of padding so I have no need of a gel seat.
That baby is so sweet.
It is good to be grammie.

Happy Anniversary! That's really something that you picked that outfit out before he was born and it ended up being his birthday! You should have told them that you just had a sneaking suspicion that he was going to be born on the 28th!
