Kayaking Lake Union

“Wherever there is a channel for water, 
there is a road for the canoe.”
- Henry David Thoreau, American author, poet, naturalist, philosopher (1817-1862)

Man, have I been slacking on this blog lately. Been pretty busy getting ready for the impending birth. We're less than three weeks out now. Things are going well. Sennet is, to quote Elmore James, "Rollin' & Tumblin'."

Yesterday I took the morning for a little "me time."

Got up early and took the dogs down to Seward Park and ran on the trails through the woods for about 40 minutes. Then we walked down to the shores of Lake Washington and the dogs went swimming while I lounged in the early morning sun.

Once back home I went down to the University District and rented a sea kayak from the Aqua Verde Paddle Club and tooled around Lake Union for a few hours. Great shoulder workout, and a much-needed mind-cleanser. The weather was brilliant, upper 70s, and being out on the water is always a welcome diversion. One of the many reasons I love living in Seattle.

I'll try to get back on here a little more often.

Your enjoyment of being on the water makes me think of one of the anagrams for your son's name:

merman sentiments

Looks like a great day to be on the water. I have rented kayaks there before and it was really fun. Stacie is looking so cute these days! Can't wait to meet the little one:)
