Rowing Against The Wind

I wanted to get out and get my feet in some dirt this weekend so I headed to Carolina Beach. Turns out that old Lieutenant Van is exactly the right size to squeeze a kayak inside. I went and rented one and kayaked the canal.
Some of the locals saw me at the put in spot and said “You’re brave”. Apparently my seafaring skills are not so sharp being from a landlocked state. Having only ever kayaked rivers, I was a little ignorant about things such as tides, wind direction, and speed. Thankfully, a local guy filled me and I’ll be sure to consult tide charts next time so my arms don’t go rubbery within a half hour.
