First morning paddle

July 29th, 2014

On Sunday I was able to get out early for my first morning paddle ever. Paddling in the morning is completely different than the afternoon or evening. I wasn’t prepared for the subtle differences, namely;

  • the air is cool, crisp
  • the Sun is shining on the opposite side
  • the wind is much more calm
  • you have a better chance of being alone
  • turtles, snakes, etc. are on the banks warming up

These are all welcome. Now I’m looking forward to getting out very early and seeing the sunrise while I’m out paddling sometime soon. Can you tell I’ve enjoyed kayaking?
