Football Sunday Paddle
I went out paddling this morning after church but before kickoff of any football games. It was a nice paddle around Dump Island, about 3.7 miles. I used my new paddle; an Onno paddle and I really enjoyed it. It is definatly lighter than my Bending Branches Slice Carbon Plus. Similar power, maybe a little more I need to paddle with it more to know for certain.
The day turned out even better after Jake Delhomme's last second TD pass to Dante Rosario. Go Panthers!
