weekend water and a heron

Here's a picture of a heron I took yesterday when I was out on a kayak. I had only intended on going out for a few minutes but the trip ended up taking a little over 3 hours.

The downside of the extended but unintended length of the trip was that I'd not bothered to put on sunscreen. Needless to say (but I'll say it anyway), I got a nice little sunburn from that trip!

The temperature was up there, around 92f, but there was a strong breeze which kept me cool so it felt great out on the water. As a result, I just kept going and going--it was a long time before I got thirsty enough to turn back.

I mentioned communing amongst sailboats yesterday, so here's a picture I took when I was in that marina. It was quite early in the morning, and on a weekday, so there was nobody there at all--except me. So I just floated about letting the slight current move me about amongst the piers.

This picture is taken at a bend in the inlet between the two main sections of the marina. It's the most open area once you get inside the cove.

I don't know if I'll go out on the water today. Between the sunburn and sore hands, I might give myself a day of rest from kayaking. Maybe.

So the question is, did you rest or not?
