In an effort to torture myself and my injured shoulder I met up with C this Saturday for a little bike ride and some kayaking. The ride didnâ€™t hurt, the kayaking did. Not only that but I was up way to late last night, and it turns out so was C, to be out on a Saturday morning doing foolish things like riding a bike and paddling a kayak around lake union.
We started out at Moss Bay, which is just a few doors down from my office so parking the bikes was made much easier then trying to find a bike rack. Then we paddled our way out into the lake, first heading north along the East side and into Portage Bay and then on to the arboretum.
The protected waters in the arboretum are easy to navigate and a pleasant area to spend a few hours. We managed to see some great looking birds of both the feathered and the non-feathered varieties. After all the arboretum is close to the UW and itâ€™s freaking hot out today.
There are more pictures up on Flickr, so go there to see the rest, and if you need a cheap way to spend some time on a weekend, go check out the folks at Moss Bay and rent something human or wind powered and enjoy yourself!
Oh yeah and the shoulder is now on ice, drugs and some wine in an attempt to help the injury heal, even though I seem determined to not let it.
