A Three Hour Tour...

Yesterday was the maiden voyage of the Kayak. I took it to a little lake in the Ocala National Forest called Mill Dam. Not sure how it got that name considering that there never was a mill and there is no dam.
Anyway, she floated and tracked well but it became obvious that boat wakes are going to be a problem. Even the smallish wakes from the couple of fishing boats that were out gave me a little panic attack as I was towards the middle of the lake when one caught me by surprise. Oh well, getting rolled will be inevitable I suppose. I'm just glad it didn't happen yesterday... the water was a little cold!
They say a boat without a name is bad luck, so I'm going to name her Rosie. That's was my Grandmothers name so hopefully that will bring me extra good luck.
But then again, every rose has it's thorns...
