Nothing like a near freezing day for my first kayak ride!
My college buddy, David, and I suited up and rode several miles on the Flint River this afternoon. We saw snowflakes on the way to our first launching point.
A relaxing paddle on the water is priceless and a meditative way to end a day off from work.
All that and a Google Maps car drove by while I was hammering in a post for a new mailbox, dressed in my best winter attire, of course — winter parka from my work days in Ireland:
…and running pants I wore under a wetsuit while kayaking:
If only our yard knew that we just had a false spring before winter set in!
Oh well, the puppet in the wheelchair understands that all is not what it seems, especially in ventriloquism…
…or electric cuckoo clocks…
…time for dinner and a dance, perhaps?
How best to wrap up a day of rejuvenating communion with nature?
