A Late Afternoon Paddle on the James River with Lanie – Lanie had a break in her rehearsal schedule, so I thought I’d take her kayaking to get her out and about for a while. One-minute read, 5 pictures

I’ve had a long outstanding arrangement to take Jonathan out in one of our kayaks. Last week we agreed some mutually convenient times, and today we finally got out on the water. 8 pictures

Ascend D10 & Ascend FS10 Kayaks at Berry Bend, Harry S Truman Reservoir – The dew and the quality of the light caught my eye.

Look carefully and you’ll see Ginger.


The fall color has been magnificent this year. Thus far we’ve not had an opportunity to get out to enjoy them. So, we’ve decide to take a couple of days out and enjoy the weather and the color while both last.

Gary upside down with his head under the deck of a Kayak (365:221) – No it’s not very well framed, but if you think I was going to extricate myself from being jammed under the fore-deck of the kayak just to check if the darned picture was alright, you are very much mistaken.

Minivan Complete with ‘Stealth Pods’ – Crighton put-in for kayaking on James River. We call them stealth pods because once we have them on the roof people seem to be unable to see us coming, and pull out in front of us, or even drive into us!

James River Near the Crighton Access Point – We put in at the Crighton access point on the James River this afternoon. The light was excellent and the colder weather meant that there was no one else around.
