Another Form Of Aquatic Recreation

Kayaks On The Mississippi 1

The frozen water skiers were not the only people playing on the Mississippi on New Year's Day. While they were having their fun, if that's what it was, a small group of kayakers floated by.  (I bet they only go downstream.) They seem as amazed as I was. Their challenge, however, was to stay far clear of the enormous barges that ply the river. Just the wake could overwhelm one of these little vessels.

Note the dog along for the ride in the top picture.

The dog's wondering why he couldn't have just stayed home and had a nap in front of the fireplace.
