A Perfect Morning

A morning launch
From a quiet beach.
The air warm and still,
With the rain falling lightly,

The distance shore
Now visible through the fog
Ripples in the water
As it meets the sand.

Inspiration drawn from a winter paddle with NSSKA. Mukilteo Beach is just south of the lighthouse. We headed across to Whidbey Island and to Possession Point before heading back. A short paddle. but in some of my favorite conditions.
