Spring Has Sprung. Sorta, Maybe, Whatever...
Today is the first day of Spring, the Vernal Equinox if you still speak Latin... It's not that obvious in today's picture, but I wouldn't lie to ya. The good news is that yesterday it was a fact that the ice was melting, large puddles of water were lying on the surface of most lakes and ponds. Ducks have been returning to the few open water sites around. My blood is starting to flow again. I'm sanding the dings out of my Greenland paddles...
On another front, Maelstrom Kayaks have announced the launch date of their new kayaks: April 6th at the Aquadrome Pool in LaSalle, 5 to 8 pm. See my posting for details.
And... today just might be the day that Barbro completes her paddle around the South Island of New Zealand! Be sure to visit her blog and give her a cheer!

I'll post another crocus tonight, just for you.
Michael, given any thought to one of the carbon fibre GPs?
Kristen - No. I like the feel (and price) of wood. I like the idea of making my own paddles as well. You?
Alway dreaming and mulling; and looking at the bank balance...
Spring indeed. I just posted my disgruntled opinion of this so called spring thing. It is an illusion, a practical joke of Mother Nature. I gather that white stuff on the tree isn't dandruff :)
