|1) Buzbees–perfect for launching kayaks. Today I led a club kayaking trip and two hardy individuals decided to brave the cold and enjoy another day on the water.|
|2) Joe, in the red canoe, started pushing a 4 mph pace and left me behind. Joe can paddle that canoe fast!|
|3) Joe, Tom and I enjoyed the almost slick waters and the reflection of the puffy clouds on the water. At one point, Tom found the hidden water falls.|
|4) We also stopped several times to observe ducks and osprey eagles. We all wished we had binoculars with us.|
5) Tom was leading us in his bright yellow Current Designs kayak on the way back.
6) The signs were looking good for a seeing a colorful sunset.
|7) Drat! Heavy clouds on the horizon hid the sun’s expected colorful disappearance.|
|8) Despite lack of a colorful sunset, this was a enjoyable paddle among good company.|
