Kayaked the south end of Long Pond. It was a calm day but the wind picked up a little. I was glad for wind because I had my wind paddle sail. It was perfect. I would paddle into the waves for a bit and then sail back. I did this a few times and glad I stopped when I did because I was tired. Sailing in my kayak is even more peaceful than paddling! I also carried my kayak on top of my Honda Element for the first time today. I used a you tube video to help me plan an attack of how to get it onto the car alone. I ended up using a ski pole stuck into my roof rack and then my other PVC pipe that I will use for an awning on camping trips makes a perfect V. This V is padded with a towel and then I lifted my kayak up to it and then lifted from the back to move it into position onto the rack. I will have to post a photo soon. It was a great day and after getting off the water it was extremely calm and beautiful. After getting done I went for my first swim in Somes Pond. It was so refreshing. I swam to the rock and back. This is the “thing” that you do at the pond.
