Day 957: Paddle Morning

Great to get out on the water in the morning, with herons and hawks and a swimming muskrat, as well as a tumult of geese, ducks, seagulls and the usual:

It’s a self-care thing and exercise — paddling was restorative when I was down in the dumps, so making time to do it when I’m feeling good only makes sense. And it is good exercise, especially when you get out past the baylet and into some wind.

A great way to get a workout in and also balance the brain and the heart — nothing seems that serious when I’m out on the water, especially when a hawk catches a crossbreeze and just hovers above the boat for 5-6 seconds before moving on.
