It’s been more than a year since I last posted on Kansas City Runner. I’m excited to share an update this Memorial Day weekend.
It’s turning out to be a great weekend of paddling for the Beems!
First was Thursday’s solo tour of an arm of Lake Jacomo. I explored every cove along the way, spotted numerous birds, turtles and fish and enjoyed the sunny, still skies.
Sunday morning, Maggie and I plan to be on the Little Blue River by 8 a.m. We’re paddling 10 miles from the Jackson Drive Bridge to the Little Blue Trail Blue Mills Road Access Point.
The tandem canoe is already on the van, and our gear is loaded and stowed by the front door. We’re both excited about the adventure.
Maggie, Tom and I will return to Lake Jacomo Monday morning. We’ll take to the lake at sunrise in both canoes to paddle and fish.
The crappie are still spawning. We’re hoping to snag some lunkers.
I hope your Memorial Day weekend is as fun and full of adventure as ours. There’s no time like the present to get outdoors and enjoy the beautiful Spring weather.
Happy running … and paddling!
