Three Castaways and a Sunday Siesta
But not for Sparky, at least not right away....Off to the lake this morning, right out our back door to the boat dock, to take the Sea Eagle 385 Fasttrack out on the lake...There was LOTS of boat traffic this Sunday, lots of jet skis, lots of motorboats, and the Sea Eagle handled it all without so much as a roll. The waves just roll right under the boat, the boat seems to absorb some of the rocking and rolling motion you'd normally get with a hard shell kayak. It's a dream to paddle! So glad I got it!
Not much to see out there today, other than the boats. Sparky is spoiled. She is used to seeing dolphins, manatees, (sometimes), all kinds of shore birds...Well, OK, she saw some shorebirds today. They look a little like royal terns, but I think they are Least Terns. What are they doing out here? These three amigos persistently sat and bobbed for a good 15 minutes. Not until Sparky floated right on top of them, did they fly away. Guess they were just castaways on their own little piece of island....er, log....They circled around a bit, then flew right back to the log after she left.
