Lazy Paddles

Sunday was a beautiful day, but I was short of time due to other commitments. I managed to get out for about half an hour. Which isn't too bad since my house is only a mile from the causeway. A few pics from the day:

I also got out yesterday after work. I felt obligated to go out when the high hit 81 degrees! Again, I wasn't out very long, about 45 minutes. I did take Indy out for the first time this year though. He did OK, but he is not like Scruff was yet. Scruff was fearless in his jumping into the water while Indy is happy to lay on my spray skirt the whole time. He gets in the way whenever he tries to sit up. We need to work on him sitting further forward on the deck or dust off the tandem. A few pics:

And lastly, we came across the fabled Missouri River rock gardens... the dam wasn't releasing enough to make them at all similar to real rock gardens though!
