Today I am a Time Traveler with a Camera... Tomorrow, who knows

Gulls, Eagles, Seals, Fall Colors

The Atlantic Odyssey is now over, it has come to a close.  It was an epic paddle for me, up the coastline of the Atlantic Ocean.  It reinforced my love of self; my desire to live a simple life; and the beauty and kindness of my fellow human beings.  I sit here this morning, sipping a cup of tea, enjoying the bright crisp fall sky.  The seals are stirring up the eddy line with small fish, thus throwing the gulls into a feeding frenzy while the pair of beautiful eagles sit on roof tops observing the scene. 

I love the Atlantic, it is such an amazing place.  One day calm and kind the next spun up and ferocious like a wild animal.  It ebs and flows on a beautiful rhythm, helping to keep my soul and spirit grounded to mother earth.  I have had an amazing 2.5 years of paddling and look forward to writing about it and sharing my tales with others.  I also am looking forward to moving onto dry land for a while as I begin a bike tour around the country.  As with my kayaking, this will be done with simplicity in mind.  Camping every night; eating simple meals; finding rhythm where the ocean doesn't exist.  It will create its own set of unique challenges, of which my legs are probably the least excited about.  Stay tuned as I begin my preparation for this trip sometime later this winter.  Details will be available shortly.
