A dragonfly hangs onto the rigging of my kayak.

Sorry that it has been a while since the last post. We have been cranking this summer and I have to admit, if it is a choice between blogging or paddling, well you get the idea.

It has been a great summer, perfect weather, warm water and lots of sun.  I for one am not ready to say it is over yet. It is true that the days are indeed getting shorter, but I am holding on like the dragonfly above is holding on to my boat. We are hoping to paddle well into October, so don’t give up yet.

See you on the water!

It’s summer, some say the dog-days of summer.

We have been keeping a close eye on the weather, and with careful planning, have been getting plenty of time out on the water despite the stormy wet weather. On Wednesday we got out and played in the gentle waves produced by the out-going tide and our more friendly wind from the north.

Just after loading up the boats, around 8pm, a rain storm came through producing a beautiful rainbow off to the southeast.

Dog star, Sirius? It’s the star, brightest in the sky this time of year. It is also where the phrase dog-days of summer comes from. Check it out at EarthSky.
