Ernesto Urban Kayaking - The Street - The Yard - The Sidewalk




Well Tropical Storm Ernesto came through today, and dropped a bunch of rain, combined with the strong Southerly wind, it caused localized flooding, and one of those locations happened to be my street. I have not seen the water get this high before, it usually just barely makes it to the end of my driveway. After coming home from a storm shortened day at work, I felt it necessary to take advantage of a closed street full of water, so I broke out the Pungo and did a little urban kayaking. There was some strange wildlife, that kept attaching itself to the kayak.
