Three weeks after the race and I finally got back out on the water today. I didn’t have my boat until last weekend but I’d decided to rest my wrist until today. Put in at Redwood City marina; a beautiful day. Supposed to be pretty hot; Indian summer and it’s almost Oct. I launched about 10 AM. No wind; the water was like glass.
This is out in the bay. I’d planned on 4-5 miles. I had to force myself to turn around; as it was I did about 6 miles. It felt so great to be back in my boat. Now I’m thinking I’ll do some reconnaissance next Sat. at Lake Sonoma. They have some boat-in campsites I’m really itching to do. Maybe I’ll go up really early Sat., check things out, do some paddling and return home in the evening.
