So many kayaks are around the harbor this year. A rental place opened up at the main beach last year, n so many folks have their own to launch at the nearby ramp it's crazy! They're so popular now. Personally I prefer canoes n rowboats. I have a strange aversion to the plastic stuff. I like wood, but for boating I'd rather use fiberglass n aluminum , as I did when younger.
I especially hate the way you have to sit with legs out in front to use them. I get sore just thinking about that posture... Rowing or paddling with knees bent down I don't mind.
How sore my arms are from work this week has me not even considering such activity. I had a tough time getting thru three guitar tunes today, n really need to work up my practicing routine, but rest seems more important these days.
Basically I won't get to have enough time off for relaxing until summer's over- But we must make hay while the sun shines, it's the price paid for living here. I've been wistful about not having time for much besides getting ready for work . It's cooler this week, n that's a relief but probably I won't swim n will catch up on a few chores instead.
I feel fortunate the wild weather further north in my state this past week spared my area. Sometimes hurricanes on the way will clear out the tourist crowds early, but this season we've been lucky with the weather so far for business.
This week was the Cape Cod Canal 100 year anniversary in Bourne, n traffic has been tied up with parades n fireworks. Guess I'm wistful about missing fireworks for work again too, but at least they showed some of it on the news later.
Have you ever kayaked or canoed. n which do you prefer?
