Yesterday my fold up kayak from Oru arrived. I was very excited to receive it. I watched the instructional video, and carefully read the manual. It has a drawing of a woman and her dog in the kayak. Reminds me of Lula. I was able to assemble it in my living room fairly quickly. It takes a lot of muscle. My arms were really sore this morning. I think I will get used to it...I hope.
The design is like origami. It's quite sophisticated. I also ordered four solar lights, a paddle, floaties, and a backpack to carry the boat to and from the water. Everything seems to be very well made. I am excited to get out on the lake and start paddling. It's time to research the best marinas and locations.
I drove up to Table Mountain campground this morning and visited my neighbor. She had a choice spot there. She is able to watch the sunrise in the morning, and enjoy the sunset at night. She had everything set up beautifully. I was very impressed. Her location actually reminds me of where I live. I think I like staying in the cabin just as well as I would like sleeping in a camper. There's something about the comforts of home that I love. My soft couch, hot water heater, well stocked kitchen, and chaise lounge are all things I would probably miss. I do enjoy cooking outdoors, though.
I ran into some friends at the lake today. We chatted for a while. It's wonderful to be enjoying the sunshine and water again. Summers in California are so fabulous! How are you doing?
