If you just go for a paddle than you can stop thinking about wanting to go for a paddle.

2015: Post 5 – Old Wobbly gets new gaskets

Today was too windy for paddling.  I suppose we could have gone to St. Philips and played in the waves, but instead Tony and I went to help our buddy Hazen replace gaskets on his drysuit...

Old Wobbly doesn't have a need for his drysuit any time soon though... he is recuperating after having hip replacement surgery.  So today was more of an excuse to just get together on a windy day, have some coffee and a bit of lunch, talk about kayaks and kayaking, and replace gaskets while we were there.  

It was a good way to spend a few hours earlier today, but I think there may be some paddling tomorrow...
