i can't believe it's over...
Doesn't that look awesome? That's where I just was! Waldo Lake. The fifth cleanest lake in the world, the second largest lake in Oregon, fed from beneath and containing almost no living material at all. The water was clear blue and you could see all the way to the bottom in most places. In other places, when the water was up to 400 feet deep, it was just blue, the most gorgeous, clear blue, all the way down. It rocked.
So, the brother adventure is over. I can't remember where I left off, but suffice it to say, he came, he had an adventure and he left. My friend Kara from the kayaking group picked us both up Friday morning, we dumped him at the airport (sorry bro, good luck) and we headed out of town for our kayaking weekend extravaganza.
The weekend passed so fast I can't believe it's actually over. Feels like just a minute ago we were loading up the boats and heading out into that choppy, windy mess. The paddle over from one shore to the other was intense -- high winds, three foot swells, the sun was shining right in our eyes. But we made it, unlike one tandem boat that capsized and it's paddlers had to be rescued by a motorboat. See, kayaking can be dangerous!
Anyway, I'm too tired to give you any kind of good description of the trip. Just know it was really fun and now I'm really tired. And a little bit sunburnt. And very happy about my life.
