119/246

One of the many things I enjoy about Spring is being able to get out on the water. Today was glorious, filled with a bright and warming sun. After texting Phriend, grabbing the camera and strapping the kayaks to the roof of the car, we were off to one of the many local waterways.  We found the wind was strong and for awhile we had to paddle against it and the current. This is not easy.  After three hours, Phriend's arms tired and mine were feeling weak and numb, we turned about.  Now the wind to our back and traveling with the current, we sailed along. We were suprised at just how quickly the water was moving.  At times it was difficult to maintan control of the kayak.  And was we laughed ourselves silly, we both ended up head on in the trees and under brush. I did take several photos of Phriend with branches in her hair and leaves in her face and I am certain she got plenty of me.  What we wouldn't do for a picture of the day!

...and this is why we don't bring our SLR's with us...lol
So do I sound conceited if I say I like this picture? We look like we're going into the depths of the jungle here! My arms hurt just looking at this picture...oh wait- they just hurt- period. Haha. (that's my one complaint for the day)
Thanks again! I had a lot of fun!

I love canoeing and kayaking. So much fun. The last time we went, we paddled for miles and didn't realize there was a wind until it was time to turn around (lol...I could have kissed the ground when we finally got back). You and Phriend have some fun adventures...thanks for bringing us along through your photos.
