Today was a nice paddle up the coast of New Hampshire. I made it up to Portsmouth where I will take the next day or two off to explore the town. It is BEAUTIFUL up here. The weather was amazing and the leaves are all beginning to flip. Life is good on the water. Andy,

Tom and Katie were up early this morning. I got up around 7:00. Katie was putting together breakfast. Bacon and egg sandwiches are always a hit with me. I told her thank you as Tom and I headed back to drop me off where I got out. We loaded up the kayak again and it
