Weekend's Fun - Long Paddle & Cherry Blossoms!
needs what? Something!
OH! Hey! I know!
wait for it
wait for it
There. MUCH better, huh?
I had two weekend fun goals for this beautiful breezy weekend - cherry blossoms and a good long paddle. Good long paddle was today, I launched midafternoon & paddled as far as I felt like paddling, which turned out to be Manhattan Beach. Trip planning? Vos is dass?
This took me right past Plum Beach, where the windsurfers were tearin' it up in a nice frisky breeze. I couldn't supress a whoop as this guy shot past me heading the other way - he zipped by a little closer to throw me a proper Island greeting - eh, shaka right back atcha, brah!
Funny how stodgy a person feels in a sea kayak in a nice breeze with these guys zipping past - but I was after fresh air & exercise & the wind (slog-making, to the sailless) & mileage (somewhere around 14) gave me just that, so it was all good!
And so were the cherry blossoms. Good people of Brooklyn, ADORE the cherry blossoms!
Very Good! And yes, there will be a gallery. And probably another BBG spectrum (although the first one was so nice that I probably shouldn't repeat, but it's a fun game to play). Just not tonight.
Other weekend accomplishments: Taxes done, check. Laundry done, check. Ticket to Hawaii purchased, CHECK AND YIPPEE YIPPEE YIPPEE!
OK, I gotta go un-salt myself & go to sleeeeeeep.
