A Relaxing Sunday Paddle

A Relaxing Sunday Paddle, originally uploaded by jmharper.

This weekend, there were two ways to paddle- with the wind, or against the wind. There was very little in between.

Against the wind, you had to work. Among the reeds, with the wind blocked, it wasn't too bad. In the open, on the main channel, it took about 5 minutes to go 100 yards in what seemed like a howling gale.

Of course with the wind, things were much easier. Here, Jeanine enjoys a wind-aided stretch, using nothing but rudder to steer her way down the creek. A nice way to travel, especially if you have earned it!
