Warning, extreme cute kitten pictures are included....
I paddled from about 1 mile up the Cotee River up through the Boyce Warner park, then 6 or 7 miles North to Hudson Beach for dinner and back.
It was an amazing day when I reached the Gulf, perfectly perfectly still. I remember still days when I used to live down here early in the morning, but I can't ever remember one this totally totally still. You could have waterskied all the way to Texas, just like a millpond. You can see in the picture how erie it was there is absolutely no difference between the horizon, you can't tell sky from sea.
The little house is a waterhouse these are old camps that are grandfathered in by the government on 99 year leases, there used to be a lot more when I was a kid. I poked around in the State Park along the coast, and tried a little fishing, then paddled on to Hudson the next town to the North.
I saw a few fish in the water, some neat birds, and watched an osprey hunting, and making a dive into the water, I don't think I have ever seen that before. Apparently he missed.
I had dinner at the little place at the beach, where I saw 4 of the world's cutest kittens. They were strays, and it was kind of sad, but they are so cute somebody will probably adopt them, at least I hope so. I shared my chicken sandwich with them. One had little bullseye stripes, and reminded me of my old cat Eddie when he was the world's cutest kitten.
