Evening paddle

The weather has been great for the past week or so, prompting me to put the kayak in the water on Wednesday night and paddle over to Prater Flats. I was out for about 2 1/2 hours. It was a great wildlife night. Lots of blue heron, kingfishers, osprey and lunker fish roiling the shallow waters of the flats. I also paddled past a massive barge as it lumbered upstream toward Knoxville. I’m thinking about paddling Tennessee River Gorge near Chattanooga soon if the weather doesn’t return to sweltering. Let me know if you want to join me …

  1. Ah. Wish I could. I fear you’d leave me in your wake. Well. That, and I don’t have a kayak. But I do remember when you got your power boat and I told you that I thought I’d rather have a kayak, myself. Or a sailboat. You said the wind wasn’t great there. Now you have both. Wonderful. Thanks for taking us along on your paddles!
