As luck would have it
So Tuesday morning I rolled the Sea Eagle Kayak out and started inflating it. My neighbor at the next site came running over, all excited.
“You might be the answer to my prayers,” he said.
I don't hear that too often. As luck would have it, he brought a Sea Eagle kayak but had the wrong inflater connector. Sure enough, my pump fit his kayak perfectly. More good karma in the bank for me.
My lovely wife and I had a great paddle in turquoise waters. Nothing like paddling warm waters in December, singing Christmas carols. Okay, maybe we are a bit warped. Not as warped as the big cruiser that anchored off the island last night. It was completely decorated in white icicle lights. The lighthouse paled in comparison.
Temperatures were -25 Fahrenheit back home. Seems early for that kind of cold. Friends of ours had the water to their house freeze. I know what that's like. Worse, in my opinion, is when the sewer line freezes. Been there, done that, now I'm kayaking in the Keys.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
