I have two kayaks, a one person sit-inside Dagger Cypress I bought 16 years ago, and a new 2 1/2 person sit-on-top kayak for taking my grand kids.
I’ve been using both this summer of the virus, to get out on Lake Ray Hubbard near Dallas, Texas, and forget about everything but paddling and nature.
I noticed first, things like the surface of the lake: the murky green color, the reeds and the sky reflected certain days like the best paintings ever.
I like taking the kids out – though they have mixed emotions about rowing!
I like seeing the giant gold carp roll, and the bass and minnows jump – then I notice the birds who live on the lake and feed on the fish and bugs.
I like the idea that Life goes on, despite the virus…
