Nothing is softer or more flexible than water,
yet nothing can resist it.
This morning dawned Perfect Paddling Day Four, while I remain languishing at home with what may or may not be strep throat. I'm voting for not; the culture has been taken and I am tossing back antibiotics, which are having no effect whatsoever on the excruciating experience that is swallowing. At this rate, it will be well into next week before I can even think about getting out.
Meanwhile, during those times I am not in a Nyquil buzz (the only relief is in sleep, not to belabor the suffering aspect of this. I don't do well at being sick, as you may have gathered), I surf around other paddling sites. I came to Dave's Yak Tales, which has the best underwater manatee photos I have ever seen. Drop by; tell him I sent you. Depending on how often he posts after this one, you may have to scroll down the first page to get to the manatees.
Surely I will get over this eventually and get back out paddling. Stand by.
