The first paddle of the year

ImagePaddles. Check. Doggie lifejacket. Check. Waterproof iPhone case. Check. A summertime-mindset in the middle of April. Double check.

It’s going to be a paddling kind of summer, and I think my friends and I are totally on board — literally — with that. My paddling pal is my Aussie-Chow, Sara, who rides up from and sleeps for most of the trip while my friend’s water-loving dog, Bailey, swims the entire time. Some say Sara is lazy; others say she is just the smart one. My favorite part is watching her nose twitch to the different smells and seeing her lean over the edge when she’s not too sure about an underwater log or diving turtle. 

Here are a few pics from our first adventure out on the Mokelumne River. I’m sure there will be many, many more to come. ImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImageImage
