Steve MacDaddy and I paddled out yesterday. Steve puts hiphop hat and wanted to practice his rolls and balanced brace in the frigid water. The air was warm but the water was not and had sting to it. It is the first day I am not using mittens.
Steven mentioned seals around the Ruffle Bar and we went for a paddle. We rounded the bar and in the shallow, Steven stopped and pointed out bobbing driftwood. Seal! There were two.
Some of the Sebago Canoe Club's littoral literati recently met with other water bloggers at one of Manhattan’s oldest Bars, the Ear Inn, housed in the historic James Brown House, a designated Landmark of the City of New York and on the National Register of Historic Buildings of the U.S. Department of the Interior. The gathering was organized by Sebago Trip Leader Bonnie, author of the blog “frogma”. Also in attendance were Sebago Trip Leader John Huntington and provisional members John Harris and Vicki Moss.
Check out Bonnie's post about the gathering to view some of her original photographs, read her own description, and find links to other water blogs with even more posts and photos from the evening. John Huntington has also posted about the envent on his blog, and John Harris also has posted about the gatherng on Summit To Shore.
