Birthday Paddling

You Know what?

I miss kayaking already. I haven't been out paddling for a week or so now, the longest paddling break I've had since last August. The lake is frozen tight for the winter and while I really like skiing, it just isn't kayaking. I suspect my long paddling session last fall has ruined me a bit for skiing without getting out paddling as well.

You Know what?

I'm thinking of heading south again with my kayak and going paddling. It won't be skiing, but if the past winter paddling trips were any indication, I will really enjoy going paddling in the warm, sunny south once again.

You Know what?

I have a winter birthday, but have never paddled on that day. It's probably too late for this year, but one of these years, I'm going to change that. I'm going to join up with some other paddlers and go some place sunny and warm and birthday party paddle for a month or so. Then I might come home and blog all about it. And maybe I'll go skiing if there's any snow left...

You Know what?

Doesn't that sound like fun?

You know what, Michael.? You're right. Let us all know when you take that birthday paddle-trip. We could probably come up with cake and candles.

You should pack a drysuit this time & try to hit Brooklyn on a weekend. Depending on tides, we could take you for Turkish in Sheepshead Bay, or Italian in Howard Beach.
