I downloaded Picasa and this is a first attempt at linking directly to the blog. I've been putting photos on photobucket, but the advantage here is it may be easier to upload the pics, and you can click on them for a better view.
This photo is from last weekend when Mom and I went out in the evening. January in short sleeves, even after sundown. We commented at how comfortable we were out in the water even as it got dark. Boats hardly ever come into the bay, especially at night, so it feels safe and comfortable, though we wouldn't have thought of doing it two or three years ago when we started out. Wow, it has been three years since we bought the first kayak. To think we didn't own that world before! Now it's like imagining not being able to walk around your block. There are always more dimensions to the world that's right around you. When you're ready, you just reach out and grab a new perspective on life. Not to CHANGE all you know and love, just to add to your experience of it. Living near the water, kayaks bring that to you.
The weather is cold now... time to endure our few days of winter. Before we know it spring will be here. And in the meantime, we'll get some warm days. This is one of the reasons I love Mississippi.
