Back in the boat

The wind almost chased me off but I went for it anyway and got in a 4.3 mile steady pace paddle today. A north wind is better in the bay and it was intermittent enought to not really build up the waves. Easy going out! Much harder coming back. Enjoyable temperature and a nice sunset. I'm not looking forward to winter. I wouldn't even mind the heat if it would just stay warm longer and the days not get short.
Had the place to myself today. Not a single boat in the bay, by the boat ramp, or in the bayou. Two guys fishing at Shell Landing were the only people I saw on the trip other than Mom joining me at the end and taking that picture of me.
The kayak has to get squeezed in these days. My last two weeks by the day: 100 mile bike ride, rest, 2 mile run, yoga, 27 mile bike ride, rest, 80 mile bike ride, 70 mile bike ride, rest, pilates, yoga and 12 mile bike ride, pilates, 5 mile run, 4.3 mile kayak, and tomorrow a 33 mile bike ride.
