While I was reading this week...I sure wasnt paddling. This picture above is one of my mind and body mending after quite a long week.
I know it's been a whole week since I wrote, and what a work week it's been. I can honestly say besides bedtime reading of Ottawa river history; the thought of kayaking rarely crossed my mind. Sleeping was a big thing I looked forward to, but alas after a day of being comatose until the P.M I kicked my butt in gear. Just before supper my wife asked me what I wanted to eat.
"Forget supper! Ill get something later" I said.... and was out the door.
Above: A blunder/equipment failure o share with the world!
As per I figured I would mess around in the very small rapids a bit. Little to my knowledge....my paddle decided to fail at the "best" moment (yet again) landing me upside down with a paddle that was essentially snapped in half. Re entered and tried to roll...half my paddle got away so I ended up swimming to retrieve my expensive half paddle and went ashore. I always post my plunders as you all know....I guess this is the reason WW kayakers use solid paddles. Oh well it was a nice cool swim anywho.
A bit of edging and general messing about to end a fine day.
I was treated with a beautiful sunset among the storm clouds that just didn't bother me by coming to fruition. Here are some shots on my way home.
