The second half of my R&R included a trip to South Carolina to visit my dad. The biggest problems I have there is that I eat and drink far too much and don’t always get enough exercise. I attempted to go for a run, but given my leg injury, it didn’t go well.

Fortunately for me, Tropical Storm Fay made a left turn instead of shooting straight up the coast to South Carolina. That left me with blue skies and an opportunity to do some paddling. I packed a lunch, rented a kayak and paddled the Waccamaw River. It felt great to get out on the water despite the mercury pushing the mid 90’s. I haven't done nearly as much training for the kayak trip as I had for my two previous trips, but an easier start will make up for that.
