Snaps

A few of my favorite photos from Saturday's kayak trip.

A beautiful way to end the day.

It was a full day of paddling. We launched at 10:00 and paddled for about a mile to get to McNab Lake. Spent most of the morning there, returning to the launch site by 1:30. Grabbed a bite to eat at Spoonbills and then decided to paddle to East Matagorda Bay by way of Rawlings Cut. It was about 3:00 by then and we paddled until dark. I fully expected to be sore the next day, but surprisingly was not. My arms felt used, but no more so than they do after a marathon knitting session. Could it be that knitting has conditioned me for kayaking?

I had hopes of finishing my second sock before this trip.

I came real close.

  3. I love it! - Knitting conditioning one for kayaking - I always tell my children knitting should be considered a competitive sport!

  5. Oh I am so jealous that you are able to kayak right now. I have to wait until April, at the earliest.

  6. Looks like so much fun. Knitting on the water hum has a nice sound to it. Way to go.

  7. Nice present but how are you going to paddle and knit as the same time? lol. Hope that you had a wonderful Christmas.

  8. I like kayaking way more than canoeing. Two summers ago, we went canoeing, and I had visions of happily knitting as we went. I was smart enough to skip the knitting. That made it less tragic when we tipped the canoe in the middle of nowhere and got everything soaking wet!
