 Gladys and Kayaking This post is about kayaking with my best girl, Miss Gladys. She shows up here a lot and in our other social media.  While it is more and more common for people to take their dogs paddling, like Blizzard and Lulu , it is something that people seem to find unique and entertaining.   Yes, that is a Saint Bernard in a kayak! I want to share a little more about Gladys's story.  (I know this is not my usual blog content with locations etc., but Gladys is a big part of my life and joins me often in the kayak.  And, as we should tell everyone on ..read more

 Another New Kayaking Season!! 2023!  Hello!!!  Are you as excited as I am for another kayaking season? I am always ready for kayaking season, but this year, for some reason, I felt like I needed it more than ever.  The winter was strange - I should have paddled longer into the fall and early winter with some of the warm days we had, but didn’t.  Then once winter hit, I felt like it hit hard.  Remember that one weekend where is was crazy cold? The one where we were all reminding each other to make sure our furnaces were working and reminding each other to stay w ..read more
