Happy New Year – Welcome to 2017

Happy New Year!  We kicked the New Year off much as you might expect, we went paddling.  But it is where we went paddling that is a bit unusual: we paddled up the East River right through the heart of New York City.  It was an absolutely bluebird day, the city was still asleep, there no were scheduled ferries or water taxis, we had the whole river, and seemingly, the whole city to ourselves.  From the seat of a kayak the river takes precedence, the city falls into the background, and you see things from a different perspective.



It is just a reminder to get out, wherever you are.  Give yourself time to disconnect, breathe and take a few moments for you.  There are singular experiences and adventures to be had no matter where you call home.  May your 2017 be filled with adventure, big and small, and may you find moments of quiet reflection in the midst of busy cities and busy lives.

Thanks to Brooklyn Kayak Guides and the Brooklyn Bridge Park Boathouse for making this day possible.

Happy trails and we look forward to seeing you in 2017!
