This morning I was on the water at 6:15. It was hazy, so there was no brilliant sunrise, but the haze dissipated while I was out. Since I don’t yet have a dry bag for my camera and I’m afraid to take my cell phone even in a water-tight container, I haven’t gotten any shots from the kayak. But here it is, in the launcher after I returned at 7:10.
It’s the smallest one, and today it was on the uppermost rack. I had to wait until I saw a man at his truck a little way off. I asked his help and he easily lifted it and placed it on the deck.
Here am I, still wearing the PFD, with my whistle and car key attached to my pants.
It was already 77 degrees hot when I arrived, and there was only the barest little occasional breeze. The water was still.
That white boat is actually derelict and ugly up close.
I paddled across to the hospital on the opposite shore and around to the other side of the hospital before heading back.
You can see some residual haziness in this direction.
Back to the Hanover Street bridge, an old drawbridge.
Home by 8:00, after taking these pictures and filling my gas tank.
