A short kayak tour

The rain of the last days has washed winter away and all snow that had covered my backyard has melted already. When I parked my car in town two days ago the whole parking place was covered with wet ice. I was very glad about my shoe spikes that prevented me from slipping.

Today it cleared up during the morning. I took advantage of the nice weather and made a kayak tour. The tiny bay where I started was still covered with 2 cm of ice but it was so soft that I could paddle through. The rest of the Baltic Sea was open. It was quite windy and so the kayak tour was quite short, but fun anyway.

I measured the water temperature at the beach: +2.8 °C. I considered taking a bath but decided against it. It was less the water temperatures but the vivid wind that discouraged me. Perhaps tomorrow …

    Johanna: Jetzt nebelt und nieselt es hier bei leichten Plusgraden vor sich hin. Und so soll es mindestens eine Woche bleiben.Gut, dass ich das Wochenende genutzt habe.

    Ich mag den Titel “two ways of life” ehrlich gesagt lieber als das Foto an sich. Der Titel kam mir, als ich auf die Inselspitze mit diesen beiden Bäumen zugepaddelt bin.

    Ja, es sind die zwei Bäume die mir so sehr gefallen ! Unterschiedlich und dennoch gleich stark bei den festhalten an der ungewöhnlichen Stelle auf dem “Insel-Stein-Boden”…
    Grüße Dich :-)
