Another GREAT Paddle
The group today includes Russell (green), Steve (yellow), Julie (orange) and Alison (blue).
Here is our returning special guest Alison.
We splashed at the CT River Estuary behind the Deep River marina.
Julie had a great idea to start a Kayaking Club, but we can only accept members that have a different color kayak. We are currently recruiting for pink, purple, brown, and red.
Onto the river...
Stopped for a picnic lunch just past the Essex Boat Club.

With this tube, we will be creating a Diet Coke Geyser.
Prepping the mentos...
Whoosh! Next time we will change a few of the conditions to see if we can get a higher geyser. This one was ok, but didn't have as much force as we expected.
Check out this video for some amazing domino geysers:

Check these out!
Guido Daniele's amazing Hand Painting Art. Guido Daniele was born in Soverato (CZ - Italy) and now lives and works in Milan. Since 1964 until 1968 he attended Brera artistic High School and he graduated from Brera School of Arts (major in sculpturing) in 1972. In 1972 he started working as hyper-realistic illustrator, in co-operation with major editing and advertising companies, using and testing different painting techniques. In 1990 he added a new artistic experience to his previous ones: using the "body painting" technique he creates and paints models bodies for different situations such as advertising pictures and commercials, fashion events and exhibitions.

Mike Feeny's tree
This is my fire: enthusiastically created and maintained by yours truly.
And finished off on Sunday with a GREAT paddle with Alison on the river from Essex to Deep River!
This was the best paddle of the season.
I wish I could do this every day!
