gathering dust

a quick visit to the kayak shed yesterday reveals all is ok and gathering dust, sure it doesn't show up much on the yellow anyway. (and nowI am wondering if thats a bit strange? to visit your kayak to make sure its ok?)

Not strange at all, Claire! I only draw the line when my boat begins to look at me funny... LOL

The Brooklyn representatie seconds the honorable gentleman from Canada's opinion.

I wouldn't even worry about the boat looking at you funny. When it works up "silently reproachful", then you may have a problem.

BTW my gardening expert just sent me some disturbing info about squash - you have to artificially pollinate them with a small paintbrush? Hm, never imagined myself playing surrogate bee before. Must start getting into character. Bzzzz. Bzzzz bzzzz. Bzzzzz. bzzzzzzzzzzzz!

thats ok then!!
and Bonnie, I didn't know that, I'm afraid I just leave mine to get on with it! and I dont get 100% sucess so maybe thats why.

Claire, are all these kayaks yours? If so, can you tell us "kayak illiterate" people more about them and why one would have more than one kayak?

Alice, ah I wish. . . my boat is the yellow one in the middle, the photograph is taken in the club 'shed' so the other lovely boats belong to club members, the club has several boats of its own too, for new folks who come along to learn. why would I want more than one boat? mine is an 'expedition' type, meaning I can pack it full of camping gear and food and go away with it, I also have a smaller boat(not in the picture but similar to the red one just to the left of mine) I can use for day trips, but in reality I always use this one, its like haveing a race-horse or a cart-horse kind of thing, one for each purpose, kayaks are cheaper. to keep though!! hope thats explained!

& don't require mucking out...

Thanks for the explanation, Claire. It does make sense, for sure. A saddle horse, or a draft horse. The mare my great niece used to have was a very good all round horse, well trained to harness and saddle, a good ride for a child or an adult. She wasn't pretty, but she sure was good. She could have carried her rider and a bunch of "stuff" tied to the saddle in one was going camping. I rode her a few times and she was very smooth at the trot, and I drove her, Wonder, paired with Willow, one winter day for a sleigh ride. Darn, but I miss the "good old days" of the farm and all the horses, family and friends.

only if it makes demands.

well fairly recently it demanded new hatch covers, but quietly in a kind of 'I'll leak on your sandwiches if you dont' way . . . .
