Back on the Water

Life’s been pretty busy these past couple of months.  I’m fully recovered from March’s WaterTribe Ultimate Florida Challenge, though this year’s recovery was much more emotional than physical.  It’s so tough getting back to the grind after a month of a great vacation.   Physically Alan (SOS) and I had done all the right things, made sure we got just enough sleep, took care of our bodies, and worked well as a team.  I’m not planning on this past UFC to be my last, but I’m thinking this team approach is a great idea as I continue to age.

Speaking of doubles, I finally got back on the water last weekend.  Kristen (KiwiBird) along with our friend David in her new used double kayak, and I spend a nice relaxed Saturday paddling on the lake and enjoying a picnic lunch.

Paul and I saw Kristen out again this morning.  We'd finally got the Dawn Patrol out of the garage yesterday and decided to take it to the lake last evening.

We camped out with a full moon, and spent the morning on a great sail, the weather was perfect.

While out there, we sailed passed Kristen who was out for a morning paddle playing with her new Flat Earth Kayak Sail.

Alan was also on the water this weekend.  He and girlfriend Taylor have moved to New Bern and participated in the Neuse River Day Dragon Boat Festival at Union Point Park this weekend.
