Kayaking nirvana

I'm scheduled to begin another round of Vidaza on Monday so I wanted to have as much fun as possible this weekend. Fortunately, the gods cooperated with some drop-dead gorgeous weather.

So on Saturday, John and I drove out to a state park in Eastern Maryland and went up Tuckahoe Creek. It was one of the most beautiful kayak trips we've ever taken.

A meandering creek, calm (and deep enough) water, tons of turtles, some amazing beaver dams, an absence of bugs, and not too many humans.

The trip would have been perfect if the hunters weren't shooting it up in the nearby woods. (Speaking of hunters ruining things, there's now a pink Palin-inspired bow for sale. God help us...) More kayaking pics here.
