Today is a travel day. Yep, I’m heading back to New Hampshire where I will spend all afternoon clearing the snow. As I was packing the car I couldn’t help but notice how warm it was out and how little wind there was. You guessed it, I decided to go Kayaking!
It was actually the best paddle I’ve had since October. It was warm and the water was calm. It was both invigorating and relaxing. It was well worth staying around an extra couple of hours even though I know that means much more traffic to fight on the way home.
This is the second year in a row that I paddled on New Year’s Day. The year before the pnf was frozen so I didn’t get to go out from December through April. Knowing how easy it is for the pond to freeze I will not make any predictions about kayaking at least once every month in 2017 as I did in 2016, but it was great getting out this morning!
That’s my smile for today, kayaking in New Year’s Day!

What made you smile this week?
If you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
