The humidity was down from yesterday and it promised to be perfect weather. We had breakfast on the ‘patio’ then got a move on. We planned to take two cars, leaving one at the take out point and the other at the put in point. And it did work that way. It took us 12 minutes to set up at the and then we glided into the relatively warm (73 degrees) water. It was smooth as glass so we actually had to paddle to get up to 3 mph. We brought Ms. TomTom and when we turned it on, our little Jeep icon was in the middle of the Delaware River! She did indicate streets we passed, and we had set her up for our take out point as our destination. 12 ½ miles to go!
Soon we were under the Frenchtown Bridge,
Hot Dog Man (and his dog) motored up and down the river once in a while. I’m not sure if he sold hotdogs from his boat, or was just advertising. There was plenty of that, too.
About 3:15 we found our take out spot, and we hoisted the kayak up to the parking lot, dried her, deflated her, folded her and put her in the car. Whew, it was a Great Trip.
Resting on the patio, a female goldfinch came to our feeder to eat the thistle seeds we bought last week. She flew away before I could get my camera. I hope she’ll be back with lots of family and friends.
Today was a fun day. Everyday should have some fun in it. Hopefully we’ll find some fun tomorrow as we work on Bella, cut grass, wash floors… hey, that’s all fun, isn’t it? If we weren’t physically able to do that stuff, that wouldn’t be fun.
