Today's stiff winds were not unlike our trip to Nequassett Lake the year we bought Joan's kayak. There were plenty of whitecaps out on the main part of the lake and we had to turn around shortly after setting out. We put in from a sheltered area on the South end of the lake. As usual - Joan, eager to get onto the lake puts a lot of energy into the start of the trip. She did all right against a stiff wind. I failed to get many pictures up ahead, as the whitecaps appeared and the going got rough. But we got far enough out into the lake to take advantage of the nearly 2 foot waves to do a little surfing on the way back in.
Can you guess what Joan is doing in this picture?
1. Getting ready to jump out?
2. Shielding the sun from her eyes?
3. Rowing the wind?
4. Telling me I've taken enough pictures?
Feel free in the comnments to add to the multiple choice questions. After a few days - I'll tell you what she was really trying to do...
This one is just a still shot taken from the surface of the water. We headed south to the dam in the very sheltered outlet to the lake. In our previous trip we had not be able to go far because the lake level was too low. The level was very high today and we made it all the way to the dam. The batteries on the camera gave out, so I didn't get any pictures of the dam.
