Since getting back from Cycle Oregon 2015, I've been interested in striking a better balance between my outdoor activities which are primarily bicycling, hiking, and kayaking. (Training for Cycle Oregon decidedly tilted my activities towards cycling.)
In fact, I've been on a bike only once since getting back from Oregon about two weeks ago. I've done quite a bit more paddling. The first two days of October I've paddled at the mouth of the Russian River which for the present is closed. The river level is high, about 6.5 ft above sea level at the Jenner launch ramp, which makes for a full river and good views from the boat.
I met an interesting kindred spirit out there, a fellow named Bob Noble, who paddles out there very regularly and keeps a blog about his outings at his blog called Bob's Eyes. He takes good photos of the things he sees.
Bob inspired me to go out there two days in a row, something I don't often do. Here's a photo that I took while out there yesterday.
Bob also got me thinking about blogging again. I thought it might be fun to keep a log of the things I'm doing now that I'm retired.
Hence this post.
