Can I state a thank you, for I am so sore... not sure if the soreness is paddling or carring the kayak to the water and back so many times?
Last year I didn't do that much paddling, now, with the varnish still drying, I have racked some more hours and trips in the MillCreek 16.5.
Next up was a trip to Assateague Island. I didn't camp out this time but I paddled/sailed solo. I tried adding some water in old water bottles in the forward hatch to compensate for the missing paddler.
My speciality: waking up at 5:30a and carting the boat to the lagoon, and paddling before most motor boats and jet skis hit the water. The water is like glass and the scene gives a sense of solitude. The threat of impending T-storms put more of a melancholic mood to the photos:
I tried to get some photos of the ponys but my camera wasn't up for it.
More to come, for I tested my sailing contraption. Soon, I'll have some photos of that.
