Project 365 2.0: September 22, 2012 | Day 297

Today is the first day of Fall!  And this is how I spent it: on a kayak in the Assunpink.  It was my first time kayaking and when Patrick pushed me out into the middle of the lake I was scared.  Though I had a paddle, I couldn’t do anything but sit there and let the water current take me straight into a pile of weeds.  I really felt like I was going to tip over, so I was just concentrating on being as still as I could.  I didn’t want to upset the little balance I felt I had.  But after drifting for a few minutes and getting stuck in weeds, I started to paddle and then Patrick told me to kayak across the lake, he would meet me on the other side.  At first I was reluctant (the other side of the lake was so far away!) but after a few test paddles, I got the hang of it and actually had a lot of fun.  I did get really wet from all my splashings during my speed paddling but I’m already looking forward to kayaking again.

    Is this picture right before you crashed into the spider-weeds?

    I like it. It’s very peaceful looking with the sun and the water and the grass. And you got just enough of the kayak in the picture. Good job!
