Apalachee River to Tensaw River 2006 XXXI

Thursday, May 25, 2006 brint.adams@us.army.mil

After two and a half weeks off of the water, it was great to get back to the bay and stretch out a little on the water. Conditions were close to perfect at 7:15 AM under partly cloudy skies, 72 degrees, no wind, high tide and still rising.

I was not sure how I would respond after the layoff, so it was best to just go for it as hard as I could. A couple of lazy gators were out to greet me as I started paddling down Pass Picada. There were no changes to speak of, as I paddled past the restaurants, reaching the Apalachee in 8:04.

The return was better with mile splits of 9:09, 9:35 with the rising tide and 10:37 against it. On the return, with hardly a ripple out in the open bay, the splits were 9:25, 10:13 and a total time of 59:18. Ahhh... I miss the water and really look forward to moving the boats to Auburndale, so I can get back to a normal routine.

    It was my pleasure to visit your blog. It is really a mirecle to visit your blog in this wide world. And I also have the feeling that it was really a pity that we didn't meet each other earlier. Because the kindness and warmth in your blog can make me completely relaxed and happy. I hope that you will visit my blog too to see if you can have the same feeling.
