The weather today was a bit cold, a bit windy. a bit cloudy, a bit sunny. Not bad enough to not kayak, but to be perfectly honest not good enough to get excited about. It was however time for a workout on the water. We were out on the van Cleef quai by seven this evening. It started to drizzle after 20 minutes or so. No bother. We paddled out of the wind, warming up, and enchanted by the soft almost fluffy green of the early spring leaves. How many color greens are there to the spring? Birds were singing, chirping and peeping; two black meerkoet ran across the water and came to a screeching stop just in front of my bow.
