Mary and I will be leaving home today for Two Rivers around 1pm to attend the North East Seakayak’s Kayak Weekend. For those of you who are not in Wisconsin, Kayak Weekend is a pretty much low key gathering. There are the scheduled “events” such as a kayak parade on one of Two River’s two rivers, (did you follow that?) but mostly it’s just a kayaker hang out. On Sunday there is a nice little gear swap as well. You never know what you’ll find.
Most of the group will be camping at a fairly urban vacant lot this year since there are reports that the beach along Seagull Marina is weed filled and smelly. Being that getting on the big lake is a major part of the event for us this was depressing news. We may just check the marina out anyway to be sure it’s past what even we can stand. As much as we want to be with the group, I know that camping in such an urban setting will just play havoc with my mood. Telephone wires and kayaking should never cross paths. On the upside it will be nice to see everyone again regardless of the camping situation. I’ve also got my brand new digital movie camera to play with. Hopefully I get something I can put up on the site next week. We’ll see. .
