Reintegration

August 15-19, 2019 – After our paddle days in the Deception Pass area, I returned home. There were several things happening that required my physical presence. Since I will need to wait to find paddling partner(s) to do the coastal piece, I’m not sure exactly when that will happen. I will do it in blocks as tides and people allow.

So I’m not really done with the journey, but I’m not sleeping in my tent, waking and paddling, then camping again, etc. It is a challenge to keep balanced, doing something for two and a half months, then not doing it.

I will be home until sometime around the 27th, weather dependent, when I cross the Columbia Bar and paddle home from there. That will be the three-day, two-night end to the 2019 journey.

So a little hiatus until then with some local paddles here and there…

I am passionate about outdoor exploration. In the recent years I have discovered how much more I can experience from a kayak. I am a professional musician and own a dairy where we produce raw milk, butter and cheeses. My son tells me I have "too much on my plate". He is correct, but I wouldn't live life any other way.

One thought on “Reintegration

  1. Life doesn’t always go the way we plan it…neither do adventures.
    I feel your disappointment, or maybe I am projecting what would MY feeling be if I were there doing what you are doing,… nevertheless you do what you need to do! Maybe your little bird companion napping on your kayak was showing you “time for a rest”!
    Rest well Kyleen! Re charge those batteries!
