The sun was out, there was a slight south west breeze and the tide was rising. Perfect for a Stand Up trip down the mighty Westport. A baby turtle, Osprey, Kingfisher, Red-winged Blackbirds and frolicking goats (it is the season for frolicking you know) were sighted. Rains and tides had scoured parts of the river and the landing will need a little cleanup...but the shop opens soon and the season is here!

SUP'n was up Sunday

I had been hoping for a day like this, one of those that remind us spring is around the corner, it’s time to shake off the hibernation and seek out of doors activities. 

Warm sun at the house didn’t quite prepare me for a sea breeze at The Landing but I should have known; it’s March. Surprisingly the water was not that cold all things considered as Carl and I jumped on the boards and headed out for some exercise. The breeze and chop didn’t slow us much as we headed over to the rocks off of Brigg’s, wind swell pushing through made for some fun close in. Small waves pushed us to shore. Carl ripping it up, me…I chose a more sedate course in. 

I need more days like this.

Carl, Sam and I are hanging out in the hallway before the pool session when this sticker is noticed. Apparently it is a real product...we have not tested it or even seen it, but there is a web site for it.
