Following through with a promise I made to myself, I put in at my neighborhood lake again this year (want to make it an annual venue - so worthy of the commitment). Truly glad I did. Splendid day on the water, full of naturally stunning sights and, except for a noisy boater I managed to shoo away, I was the lone human. The adventure ended with a splash and I lived to paddle another day.
