What a day!
I got started early and drove into town for supplies. Picked up lumber, hardware and paint for a house project. Did some other shopping since I was in the “big city” ~10,000 people.
My lovely wife and I spent the afternoon sailing on the lake. I think we are having some of the best weather in the country right now.
After sailing the canoe went on the veggie van and I headed upriver to an evening paddle. It was the start of the annual “Source to the Sea Trek.”
While I’ve paddled much of the river many times, I never signed up for one of these organized events. It proved to be a lot of fun. There was a good mix of people I knew and new people to meet. Before I was a sailor I was a river rat, and this was the river of my youth. Good memories and good times.
Sadly, my camera’s batteries died and don’t have any photos. Maybe I can get a few from some of the other participants.
I’m beat and calling it a day.
