July – 2018

Since we have a new cat, Sushi, there will be too many photos of her. Its hard not to like a kitten!

There is no such thing as too much Brian Waldrop. Which one is real?

They moved the bike rack at work, but didn’t do such a great job re-attaching it…

I was worried one of our solar panels broke. Then realized that a firework had to have landed on it. Eventually the rain washed it off.

July Sunset Race (116th) – 7/12/2018

The 116th Sunset Race was set to go downriver to the Meramec Marina. The race would be 12 days before the MR340, so I hoped to see several paddlers out for a fun training run before the race. Several of my favorite people where here to paddle!

I brought two boats tonight. The kayak is for Megan to paddle, and I get the treat of having Danelle in the boat with me tonight!

Bernie looking dapper as ever!

With all of these boats, its always a challenge to tie up at the marina, but we’ve always found a way!

What a fantastic group of people and a great night for paddling!
