Yesterday I went kayaking for the first time this year - finally.
Recently students were asking me: "Did you go kayaking yet?" and many were surprised that it is already June, but my kayak was still dry. Me too. But the past month of weekends I have been busy, or the weather has been windy/cold. So I didn't go kayaking.
But yesterday was a beautiful day and I went to Morapu Camp area at Lake Shikotsu - I paddled for about 2 hours - all the way to Shikotsu Onsen village, and then back again.
My arms and back muscles had good exercise!
But it was also relaxing, hearing the birdsong and the water. Peaceful. I'm always surprised how clear the water is at Lake Shokotsu.
My kayak season has started.
