I digress, back to my extremely interesting paddle on Lake Macquarie. Anyway, the heartpounding adventure of Saturday over, I repeated the exercise on Sunday, nice and early. It was overcast and rained which was good as there was very little traffic in Warners Bay except some small powercraft and the Speers Point Rowing Club rowers getting yelled at by some fat dude in a tinny with an outboard. Nice. This morning I felt great and since a storm was fast apporaching I crossed the bay direct to my car and focused on a good powerful forward stroke into the wind. The water was starting to get choppy and more interesting but I really felt in touch with my boat and in the swing of the stroke.
All in all a good workout weekend. The only problem being the Wiley-X SG1s I spent a fortune putting prescription lenses in. I have already sent a pair of $500 Bill Bass sunnies with Nikorlite lenses to the bottom of Croudace Bay so I went for tactical goggles to prevent this. I ebayed the SG1s at a good price and spent a motza on the scripts. The problem is the bastards fog up and even rain inside!! SHIIIIT!! I can’t take a trick. I intend modifying them to increase the airflow but I won’t know if this works till next time.
