I've not posted anything in a while, but thought I would get back in the groove with a post about paddling today.
Couldn't get Zack to come today. He said it was winter and he doesn't paddle when it's cold. Never mind that he has had a great time when we've had to break ice or that it was unseasonably warm today. Regardless, it was just two of us today.
We took a short trip on the Meramec River. It was nice and peaceful. The sun was a bear early due to the angle. Several geese and ducks greeted us shortly after the put-in.
Not the best of places to take out, but we got ashore and hauled the boats up the hill. Someone else was backing in with a long racing boat. Asked if we were training for the MR340. The race seems interesting, but I don't think I want to be in a boat that much. I like to enjoy paddling.
It was a great day to be on the river.
