And I step into a kayak…

This is super out of order – it’s part of my series called “cleaning up my drafts folder”

I’ve been kayaking a lot.

I mean… you don’t even understand how much time I’ve spent in a small plastic boat, on the charles river, over the last few weekends.

It’s a bit ridiculous… but also quite enjoyable.  It’s like biking… a bit.  Instead of legs, there’s arms.

Instead of breakneck speed, there’s a slow cruise.  Instead of the breeze of motion, there’s the wind off the water.

And my favorite – Where a cyclist has to keep intense situational awareness going at all times, a kayaker can simply take a break and ignore everything.

The origin of this is that, a month or three ago, I bought myself a membership to the kayak rental group that lives along the charles river – they’ve got a few locations, so I have enough options on where to go paddling that I haven’t really gotten bored yet.  And they have Sea Kayaks too, which definitely make everything a bit easier.  They’re more prone to rocking and tipping, but the rudder is amazing and 100% worth the extra effort to stay afloat.

What more is there to say?
