Last Wednesday was one of my days off. We wanted to go out for a paddle, but the wind was kicking up a bit. I have reached the age that I don't want to fight the wind while I'm paddling - getting old and lazy I reckon ;) We looked at a few maps and I suggested a creek paddle that I've been wanting to do. Treebeard is my weatherman and he noted that the wind shouldn't bother us too much given the orientation of this particular creek. He's pretty good about things like that so I usually trust him.
Our paddle was not a particularly long one, but it was a very enjoyable one. We will be floating Sawyers Creek again I'm sure.
