Today, Daisy made her maiden voyage
And a second monument today, Lou's friend and my new friend Whitt made his first kayak voyage in his new PA14.
Lou and Whitt go way back with their connection at Bike World in Alamo Heights.
We met up this morning at Boerne City Lake
first time for this boat to get wet - Whitt used to sail Hobie 16 cat
I was in my Kestrel, and trying out new shoes - Chaco Torrent Pro - I really like these for freshwater kayaking.
The plan was to fish, but Lou was so excited he ran off without his rod. So we just paddled.
And Whitt sailed a bit
We paddled all the way to the flagstone at the top of the creek arm
and got out for a stretch
Then all the way back to the gravel beach at the park
My Kestrel and the new PA14
From the beach, Lou and I paddled to the dam, and back to the launch, while Whitt sailed a broad reach back and forth for the same distance.
Rounded out for a nice 5-mi paddle this morning.
Success for all, and Whitt got a nice baptism when he fell in getting out.
Fun for all, and Lou has his next two wooden boat projects lining up - he's posted here before, maybe we can get him to post his new project(s), as well.
