Over the weekend, as I prepared for a day of outside adventure, I was sitting on my dock at sunrise. The plan for the day would be run, shoot, then go kayaking before my second archery practice.
River, as usual ran with me and we were – as usual – joined by our friend Coco after about a mile of easing running. Once the two girls get together easy is surpassed by hard play.
Following the run I got in about an hour of 18-meter practice. The sun is begining to migrate alone the horizon as the season starts to change. For a while I’ll need to take the shadow variance into consideration when shooting early. Seems I need to shoot from right to left starting on the bottom of a 3-spot. Otherwise, I end up with a shadow from the top X that falls directly over the bottom right X.
After the morning archery practice, Brenda and I loaded our Necky Looksha boats into the truck and searched for new creeks to paddle.
Not far from our home we found a couple of nice places to kayak. This isn’t white water but it is serene.
The water is swampy and around any bind you can paddle up on all manner of wildlife.
In places it does get tight and we are careful to keep watch for snakes.
