Thursday Kayak Trip - Ashville Bridge Creek




Well looking forward to the weekend, the weather is not looking good for kayak activities so I took off a little early, and did a quick trip on Ashville Bridge Creek.
I decided to take the video camera today, and try and capture some video and at least some sounds, the only problem is that I now have about an hour of video taking up about 10 gig, now I need to edit it down and at a minimum put some of the audio online. When I got to the mouth of Ashville Bridge Creek at Back Bay, and decided to mount the camera to the kayak and do a video of the full length of the creek, it worked out pretty good, but the wind noise took out a lot of the audio. I'll figure out something to do with it.
The dragonflies are really noticeable now, but I couldn't get any pictures due to the wind. The lotus are getting ready to bloom, I think in the next week or so we'll be seeing the initial lotus flowers.
In the near future I am planning on loading up with mosquito repellant and doing a twilight kayak trip, because as the sun was beginning to set I noticed a lot more activity. The video camera has some low light features, and I may be able to get some good night pictures.
