Loading the kayak and all my gear in the car the night before made heading out easy. The Pres was still sleeping when I left. Putting in was a bit unsettling but I managed to make it down the rather steep gravel pulling the kayak behind me. Stepping into the kayak, I wondered IF I would be able to pull the kayak up the hill once I finished paddling.
Caught off guard by how much the wind had picked up since I left home, it was relatively easy paddling since it was against my back. Following the Eastern shore as I paddled, I realized that there were only two other paddlers this early.
Fish were jumping everywhere...big ones I'd say based on the splashes they made.
