Kayaking: Swayback/Lake Jordan, Friday, 6/24/2016, 08:00-10:00CDT
Distance: 4 miles Difficulty: Moderate due to heat, distance, and dealing with ski boats on the lake
Conditions: Clear/calm. Hot/humid (typical Alabama summer weather). Lake smooth except for chop from the occasional ski boat.
Enjoyable morning on Lake Jordan. Water birds were busy trying to catch breakfast. Fish jumping and turtles sunning. Mimosas and some type of white lily were blooming along the shore throughout the route.
Kids at Camp Chandler were putting in the small sailing boats as I paddled by on the way back. Their colorful sails and excited chatter made me smile.
Thank YOU, LORD, for this place and time -- for YOUR splendid Creation.
