What can I say, great company, beautiful weather, lovely warm water and a large golden moon. It was just magic.
Ginormous in whitewater circles my Nomad 8.5 was the pigmy tonight. But far from developing a chip on her coaming she surprised some of the canoers with just how fast she can go! They figured that she was pretty much at hull speed, which sounds about right. I estimated that she would reach that at about 4.5 mph. Just like walking on water, huh.
The long flat course was a great excuse to focuse on good body rotation. Turns out body rotation is all it is cracked up to be! Although I really like the toning my arms have undergone since spring, I’d rather spend the energy on playing! (Hello Chad.)
We parted with plans to do that again really soon.The lovely moon picture is from Utah Skies. Hope you don't mind. It just looked so much like what we saw over Calhoun :-)
