Morning Kayak 
in the Sky



Evening Kayak 
on Waves of Glass


~My Kayak and I have had some 
good days out on the water this week.~
~~~~

Off to the city this weekend with my oldest as we signed up for a 
10km Night Race together.

It's his first 10km run. 

Bet you the free headlamp we get with our registration 
that he beats me.

(even though he hasn't trained at all....)

~~~~

Have a wonderful weekend.....

Gorgeous, gorgeous pictures. And I totally think the reason he entered with you was JUST for that free headlamp. ;)

well, good luck to you both! (but more so to you.) ;o)

lovely pix! i always tend to look at shots of mirror-like lakes sideways, like a rorschach test. i'm odd like that...

Judy said...

I won't even bet on that...I know ;)
Beautiful lake, that second one feels like I'm sitting there.

It does look wonderful, Dawn. Both shots. Enjoy the race. You will be one proud mother when he finishes, whether ahead or behind you.

Really cool pictures. Looks like you were kayaking in a post card. Have fun racing this weekend! It's really cool you will be racing with your son. You might win if you make a bet that winner buys dinner :-).

ooo, a night run, how fun!
I am so jealous of those kayak pictures! I love kayaking and tend to worry about my camera with me... are you?

darlin said...

Beautiful shots Dawn, what a peaceful way to spend some time.

All the best this weekend, just don't bet more than the headlamp or headlight (whatever you called it!) you might surprise yourself one of these days!

Peter said...

How serene, just hear the sound of the paddle splash.

I'm jealous, I need a morning like this. Or even just an hour.

EG Wow said...

Beautiful skies. I wish I'd been out there in a kayak too. :)

Allison said...

I was just telling my hubby about your kayaking experiences. I told him that I think we ought to consider buying one - and then I reconsidered. We need TWO because I refuse to let him drive all the time. Ugh! :D

floweringmama said...

Wow, Dawn! That second shot is spectacular.
