Release Date 1/14/2007

This was the first leg of our Cape May to Brooklyn paddle. It was a long drive down there. We left Brooklyn around 4:30 in the morning, and I didn't get back till 7:30. We spent 5 hours and 45 minutes on the water.
It was a very calm and overcast day when we started. The sun came out during the day for a little while, and the wind picked-up a bit, but generally was very calm.
The lighthouse is about the most interesting part of the paddle. There is a large lighthouse, and an old WW II bunker right at the start. It must be very nice, and busy in the summer. There were only a few people walking dogs in the morning, but a lot of folks when we came back to get the cars at sunset.

There is a video of the launch here:

The paddle along the coast was uneventful. It was very warm for January. I think it must have been up into the 60s when we were in the sun. Kids were playing football in shorts on the beach, and bugs were flying around our heads. It could have been May.

Truth: Sometimes doing nothing can still make a great day.
