aka The One Where I had to hack a passage through the ice with my paddles to get out...

Yep, that was new. :)

Behold, more boating pics. For I was paddleboarding yesterday and the frost on the grass in combination with the fog in the air made for an enchanting atmosphere. I didn't even mind the cold (much) because it was so beautiful.

I took the pics with my phone so they got a bit darker than it actually was, but considering I took them from a moving board, vaguely pointing in the right direction while trying not to spin off course, I'm really happy with how they turned out.

and two more )

This is the creek that runs through town. It's usually too shallow for canoeing, but my board doesn't need a lot of water underneath when I don't put on the fin. I only touched ground a few times when passing groundsills; hope the level will rise another 20cm or so in the coming weeks. That would be perfect.

Oh man, it's been half a year since I last posted here. There are so many distractions. I'll see if I can change that and be a bit more present here.

Anyway, this year I fullfilled a longtime dream of mine and got a paddleboard... they're making them inflatable now, so being carless is no longer an issue. I've spent a considerable part of my free time this year on various rivers in the area, and here are some photos. I hope they can convey some of the beauty and joy you get while paddling.

I plan to go tomorrow as well... been keeping my eye on the outside temps and water levels and it's looking promising. :)
