nothing like a kayak, a swim, and a sketch in November.

just before the end of summer I found a little boat club where I can keep my kayak.

and then we went on a lovely trip to Pylos and surrounds, staying in Marathopoli.

These were definitely the last days of summer, my friend has pulled the blanket down under.

 shadows are getting longer, last days of a perfect late summer.

after a year of due consideration I have decided to buy a sit-in kayak (thought about building one but it is just too difficult and the result would be too heavy and of doubtful water-tightness). The size is just right to fit into the Libero with a centimeter to spare both ends and the weight low enough to be lifted alone. Since I cannot not build something I made a pair of wheels for it to get to the water easily (and in style).

my favorite material, marine plywood oiled as basic material and a pair of light big wheels rescued from a broken garden trolley ages ago. Overall weight turned out to be only 1.7kg.

the “scissors” are held together with a bicycle clip that opens easily and the wheels can be stored behind the seat.

oh, and of course it is great fun paddling around our coast.
