Yesterday, my left boob started hurting. My first thought was “Great, it’s cancer”. My second thought was “I kinda remember whacking it, but don’t remember how I whacked it”.
I didn’t think any more about it till last night in the shower. My left boob started hurting. My first thought was “Great, it’s cancer”. My second thought was “I kinda remember whacking it, but don’t remember how I whacked it”. Then I got out of the shower and saw the bruise. I thought “Dang! what was I doing when I whacked my boob?”
I showed it to the wife. I said “I kinda remember whacking it, but don’t remember how I whacked it”. She asked if it was kayaking.. “Oh yeah, kayaking.” (Thinking “she thinks I’m going senile”) I remember whacking it at some point, either loading or unloading the kayak from the car, or climbing aboard after snorkeling, but nothing significant, I didn’t really give it much thought. I mean, I didn’t think I hurt myself, nothing unusual happened while kayaking. I DO remember whacking my boob and thinking “OW!”, but it was no big deal.
Seems like I always injure myself right before some vacation time. Two days and a wake up!
Yesterday I loaded up the kayak and went looking for the wreck I saw from the air. At first I didn’t think I’d find it, but after I got out to the wrong buoys, I saw the right one. It was a big wrecked sailboat.
After that I paddled out to the inside of the reef, very close to the wrecks at Wreck of The Ten Sail, the site where a sailing fleet wrecked a couple hundred years ago. The wreck you see here is NOT from those sailing ships.
It was a great day!
Today is the last day of my vacation, tomorrow it’s back to work. 😦
Woke up this morning to two sick dogs. I thought there were two, now I’m thinking only one. Ditto has this medicine that the doctor said if he gets sick, stop giving it to him. Well, I’m stopping. This morning after our walk, bloody diarrhea all over the living room. And Ditto was so humiliated I couldn’t even be mad at him. One of my New Years Eve wishes was that Ditto would be healthy and happy for 2014, but I don’t know if he’s going to make it. I can tell he’s in pain.
It was a good weekend, went to the beach Saturday, and Sunday, went to a Guy Harvey Earth Day Mangrove cleanup. After the cleanup we had lunch at Morgans Harbor. Below are some videos and photos from both.

Lately people have been doing this “stand up paddleboarding”. I don’t see the appeal. To me, it doesn’t look like much fun. First time I saw anyone on a kayak, windsurfing or hang gliding or sailing in a sailboat, I thought “Dang, now that looks cool!” But paddleboarding looks slow and boring. You have to have flat calm water and it looks terribly inefficient. On a kayak you can put your back into it and get going as fast as you can. Paddleboarding looks like the challenge is to stand up and paddle at all. Apparently it’s all the new rage, but I don’t see the thrill.
DO you see the thrill?
