“Spend as much time as possible on mountains, in small boats, or otherwise out in the weather; if you never get wet, cold, exhausted or scared, you won’t properly appreciate being dry, warm, rested and safe.” ~ Peter Jay

4th of July Weekend
I did a fair amount of paddling over the holiday weekend. The weekend started out on dry land though with my 10 year high school reunion on Friday evening (man, I am starting to feel old). On Saturday, I paddled upstream from the causeway to diver's point, about 4.5 miles up. The dam was releasing, so my trip back down went quickly. I paddled around La Framboise on Saturday evening and again Monday afternoon. I also took Indy out in the tandem on Monday. A few pics...
