The lake was 5 feet above normal - here the water is
This shows that I'm willing to look dorky on my own web site. Here I
am with my boat
It was incredibly warm and still on this Saturday in November - what a perfect day to be out in a kayak!

I did a trail run at Arcadia one evening after work, then piddled around enjoying the beautiful scenery. Nice, huh?

him hitch a ride back to the park with me.
Have boat, will travel.
