Meet my beloved Pink Floyd, purchased last August:
Floyd and I go out on the ironically named Speed River.
My August/September ritual was to get up on Sunday mornings, pack a light breakfast and make a travel mug of tea, and wheel Floyd down to the river for a leisurely paddle and nosh before it got too hot. We usually ended up here before turning around and heading back home:
Along the way, we would see things like this:
And of course, these:
I can’t think of a better way to spend a morning. Or an evening. Or a day.
This spring I purchased Floyd a little “sister”, yet to named. A bright green tandem (two person) kayak. So friends and family can come onto the river with me, instead of having to listen to my raptures about how wonderful it is out there.
I am looking forward to my first full season of this wonderful activity.
